Some college students were recently asked what they thought of Trump sending troops to the border. Their responses were overwhelmingly negative. They were then asked what they thought of Obama doing the same thing in 2012. Some of them didn’t even know about it!

VIDEO: Students shocked that Obama also sent troops to border
Last week, President Trump announced a plan to deploy troops from the National Guard to the southern border in an attempt to stop the influx of illegal activity in the region.
Critics of the move were vocal in their condemnations, claiming it was excessive and subtly racist in nature.
The decision, while controversial, is not without precedent, as Presidents Obama and Bush each enacted similar measures during their times in office.
With that in mind, I headed to the University of California, Santa Barbara to find out if outrage at the decision was based more on policy considerations, or merely the personality of the person enacting that policy.
Students immediately made clear that they would not support any measure that would send troops to protect the border.
One opened by saying “It’s not justified…it’s a totally uncalled for act of power,” while another remarked that “I don’t think it’s good to send militarized troops to people who are coming in unarmed.”

These students apparently get all their news from the liberal media. Except for that last guy.
