Clinton: There’s a ‘Limit’ to How Many Migrants U.S. Can Take

October 1, 2022

Thursday on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS podcast, former President Bill Clinton said that “there is a limit” to how many migrants the United States can accept before it causes disruption.

Asked if some order doesn’t have to be placed on the broken, overwhelmed asylum system in the U.S., Clinton replied, “I agree with that. There is a limit to how many migrants any society can take without severe disruption and assistance. And our system is based much more on an assumption that things would be more normal.

“For example, as long as I can remember, we’ve had an immigration system, we’ve given green cards to people from other countries who had valuable skills that we needed. And it generally had a lot of support until somebody felt their economic interests were threatened,” he continued. “When I was a boy, when I was a young man even, Mexican citizens moved freely back and forth across the Rio Grande River and did agricultural work. And it worked for people. NAFTA happened at a time when there was increasing industrialization. Everybody knew that was going to happen, but it did displace jobs.”

He added, “El Paso lost 6,600 jobs when the manufacturing of jeans went across the border. But they supported it, because they knew that over the long run, they had to find a way to live together and work together. So this is an old story. But now you just got the largest number of refugees since World War II because of Syria and now Ukraine. And other problems in the middle.”

Not to mention the fact that the Biden administration, run behind the scenes by radicals Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett, has essentially thrown open the border in order to admit literally millions of future Democrat voters.
