The Clintons wasted no time in denouncing Donald Trump after he signed his controversial immigration ban, with Hillary tasking to Twitter to claim that it is “not who we are.” However, a piece of footage from 1995 has just surfaced proving that the Clintons actually once proposed a very similar immigration plan…
Here’s what Hillary had to say on Twitter about Trump’s ban.
I stand with the people gathered across the country tonight defending our values & our Constitution. This is not who we are.

Now, footage from 1995 has surfaced showing then-president Bill Clinton take a similar stance on immigration. During his speech, Bill said Americans have the right to oppose illegal aliens and that illegal immigrants both take jobs from Americans and “impose burdens” on taxpayers by taking welfare benefits, he said.
“All Americans, not only in the states most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country,” Bill said during the speech. “The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers.”
“That’s why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens,” he continued, according to The Daily Caller.
Bill then promised Congress that his upcoming budget proposal would “try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan.”
“We are a nation of immigrants,” he concluded. “But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.”
Clearly, the Clintons aren’t NEARLY as different to Trump as they would have us believe. SHARE this story so we can EXPOSE the Clintons!
