In an interview with Southern California public radio station KPCC on January 30, 2007, former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, running again for Virginia governor, called for the United States to “shut these borders down” and to deport illegal aliens “taking our jobs” back to “the countries they came from.”
“We got to shut these borders down, absolutely,” the hypocrite McAuliffe said at the time. “These people shouldn’t be coming in this country. We need to enforce our border protections … for the people who have not been here, who have been here illegally, and who have taken advantage of the situation, we need to have a plan to get them back to the countries they came from…
“I don’t care if you are Democrat or Republican, we all agree you got to shut the borders down. People coming into our nation, taking our jobs … first and foremost, which I couldn’t agree more, we got to shut these borders down. And we got to spend more money on the enforcement of this and we got to start it today.”
The resurfaced comments come as McAuliffe won the endorsement of CASA in Action — one of Virginia’s largest open borders lobbying groups. “[McAuliffe] understands the critical role that Virginia plays in showing the nation that the Republican playbook of Trumpism and nativism doesn’t resonate in Virginia or anywhere,” CASA in Action Executive Director Alonzo Washington said in a statement.
Oh yes it does. Protecting our borders resonates with a minimum of 84 million Trump supporters, legal citizens whose lives are being tragically impacted by open-borders radicals like hypocrite McAuliffe. But those people aren’t Democrat voters, so McAuliffe doesn’t care.
