Perhaps one of the largest issues we are noticing leading up to the quickly approaching elections is the way the Democratic Party has been welcoming illegal immigrants into the country, more than likely as a way of gaining votes, less likely because of their “compassion” for others.
Why didn’t the GOP just take this old clip of former President Barack Obama and turn it into a Midterm ad?
It would have been the perfect message to inspire Republicans to get out there and vote Red.
The message says, “Border security is of the utmost importance to United States national and economic security.”
And according to Obama, Democrats feel the same way as Republicans about border security.
President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, sent out a tweet on Monday which included this shocking video clip:

Former President Barack Obama can be seen talking in the clip, while a senator from Illinois, says: “I think we should have strong border security.
It doesn’t make sense for us to allow hundreds of thousands of people coming to our borders without us knowing who they are.”
“Oftentimes in very hazardous situations and unmonitored situations that could do us long term damage,” Obama states.
Take a look at another video of Obama relaying the same exact message:

“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country,” Obama states in the clip.
This is a very smart idea, and honestly Obama could technically take credit for being the very first President to come up with stronger border security.
It’s not like he hasn’t tried to take credit for Trump’s economy…
In September, The New York Times reported that the former president stated that the economic turn originated during his time in office.
“When you hear how great the economy’s doing right now, let’s just remember when this recovery started.
When you hear about this economic miracle that’s been going on, when the job numbers come out, monthly job numbers, suddenly Republicans are saying it’s a miracle,” Obama stated.
He went on, “I have to kind of remind them, actually, those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and 2016.”
Now take a look at Obama talking about immigrant children who were sent to cross the U.S. border alone, without their parents. This interview was conducted while Obama was still in office:

The GOP should have ran these clips as campaign ads! Maybe next time.
