As I’ve noted before, it wasn’t too long ago when Democrats bemoaned how cheap illegal immigrants coming into the U.S. pushed down wages on blue collar citizens.
What changed between then and now?
After a brief respite in the early 2000s, Political Correctness reared its ugly head and took total control over the Democratic Party, making that Party more overtly anti-white and culturally totalitarian than ever before.
In the recent ‘What will you do for Hispanics?’ CNN/Univision Dem debate, Bernie was called out for saying as much in 2007.
When libs like Bill Maher use their platform to point out the blatant pandering, capitulation to P.C., and subsequent positional-reversal by Dems, you know something is happening. From RealClearPolitics:
Bill Maher said after watching the recent Democratic primary debate co-hosted by Univision he realize there was a “real change” in the Democratic party’s position on illegal immigration. It used to be comprehensive immigration reform, Maher said, now it’s “you get across that river, you’re here to stay.”
“Did you see the Democratic debate on Univision about a week ago?” Maher asked on Friday’s edition of his HBO show Real Time. “Because there has been a real change with the Democrats, too. Mission Creep, I would call it. I understand their position was comprehensive immigration reform. Now, in front of Univision, it seems to have morphed into, ‘you get across that river, you’re here to stay.'”
“I don’t think that’s really what was said,” guest panelist Sister Simone Campbell, a liberal activist, said.
“Well, it certainly wasn’t what Hillary said two years ago, which was ‘we have to send a clear message. Just because your child gets across the border that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay,'” Maher quoted.
“She’s changed her tune a lot from that,” Maher commented.

Meanwhile, NumbersUSA has posted a few choice quotes from The Organizer from 2006. (It’s also worth mentioning that The Organizer was opposed to gay marriage until 2012).
