Campus Reform recently visited a college campus and asked students for their thoughts on a quote about illegal immigration.
Students assumed the quote was from Trump and denounced it as racist. They were then informed that the quote actually came from Obama.
Campus Reform reports:
VIDEO: Students say Obama immigration quote racist…when they think it’s from Trump
President Donald Trump announced that he would use ICE to track down and deport illegal aliens who have been convicted of a crime.
The move prompted outrage from many on the Left who accused the practice of being anti-immigrant and unprecedented.
Proponents of the move pointed out this week that President Barack Obama gave his support to the same policy when he was in office and bragged of deportations of criminals having increased 80 percent during his tenure.
In 2014, Obama gave an immigration address from the White House, in which he said:
We are a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous. That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s why we’re going to keep focusing on threats to our security.
Wanting to know what college students would think of this quote and whether Obama was “racist” for wanting to deport illegal aliens convicted of a crime, Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips headed to Georgetown University to find out.
After being told the quote came from “a president,” students offered near-universal condemnation for it, as well as the policy of deporting criminals.
Watch the video:
Ironically, something similar is happening in government. Democrats continually use photos from the Obama era to attack Trump.
It’s so dishonest.

It’s amazing what the left gets away with.
