Remember When Democrats Were For an Immigration Freeze Before They Were Against It?

Once upon a time, there were Democrats who though just as we did when it came to issuing visas to people from terrorist-abetting nations. They were definitely against it, thought it was a great policy, and voted for enforcement. Where are they now? Suddenly they are against it. They change sides on issues faster than my windshield wipers in a heavy downpour. 

As Written By Daniel Horowitz for Conservative Review:

Do any of our political elites care anymore?

When it comes to immigration and national security (and every other policy, for that matter), even many conservative Republicans can’t hold the ground plowed by liberal Democrats just 15 years ago.

Only a handful of Republicans are calling for a shutoff or cooldown of immigration and visas from the Middle East. Trump has made it a staple of his campaign and Sen. Cruz, R-Texas (A, 97%) has for a halt to the refugee program. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. (A, 92%) introduced a bill cutting off visas from countries overrun by terrorists. Yet, outside of a few House members, nobody else wants to pass even a standalone bill enacting this common sense imperative, let alone use the current budget bill to force the issue. All Republican leaders want to discuss is throwing more money at a problem rooted in willful blindness. Those bills will likely strengthen Muslim Brotherhood front groups responsible for training local law enforcement through block grant programs…..

In 2002, Congress passed the Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act, which addressed many of the insecurities in our visa tracking system. The bill passed the House and Senate unanimously. The bill was originally sponsored by a group of bipartisan senators, including Ted Kennedy and Sen. Dianne Feinstein…..

Just 14 years ago, Democrats supported cutting off visas from dangerous countries
