When NY Senator/Presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand was appointed to the U.S. Senate, Hispanics went nuts because she was so anti-illegal immigration. Now the political hack is talking about tearing down the existing border barriers.

On Thursday, Twitchy said that Democrat White House hopeful Beto O’Rourke told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that he would tear down the parts of the border wall already up and in place.  Sensing that stance would be popular with the extreme leftists Sen.Gillibrand one of what seems like the thousand Democrats considering a run for the White House in 2020, said she could support O’Rourke’s call to tear down existing barriers.

If there was ever any doubt that Democrats support open borders, this should remove them.

“I’d have to ask folks in that part of the country to see whether the fencing that exists today is helpful or unhelpful,” she told Fox News.  “I could look at it and see which part he means and why, and if it makes sense, I could support it.”

Fox News added:

O’Rourke, who’s seriously mulling a White House bid of his own, said Thursday in an interview with NBC News that he’d “absolutely … take the wall down,” referring to the barrier by El Paso, Texas.

O’Rourke, who came close to upsetting GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in last November’s Senate election in Texas, argued that the existing 600 miles of wall and fencing along the 2,000-mile border have “not in any demonstrable way made us safer.”

Republicans quickly criticized O’Rourke, charging that he embraces open borders.

Quite an agenda for the Democrats, wouldn’t you say?

While speaking in New Hampshire, Gillibrand also claimed the border crisis is “manufactured.”  In other words, she thinks it’s all FAKE!

“I think the only national emergency is the humanitarian crisis that President Trump has created at our border by separating families from children and treating people who need our help inhumanely. I think this is manufactured, I think this [is] inappropriate,” she said.

Odd, we don’t recall her angst when Obama separated families at the border…

Here’s the strange part, before she advocated open borders she was strongly opposed to illegal immigration.

In Jan 2009 when she was appointed to take over for Hillary, the NY Times wrote:

During her one term in the House of Representatives, from a largely rural, traditionally Republican district, Kirsten E. Gillibrand was on safe political ground adopting a tough stance against illegal immigration.

Ms. Gillibrand, a Democrat, opposed any sort of amnesty for illegal immigrants, supported deputizing local law enforcement officers to enforce federal immigration laws, spoke out against Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s proposal to allow illegal immigrants to have driver’s licenses and sought to make English the official language of the United States.

The Spanish language daily El Diario gave the Senator front page coverage. They ran. Kirsten Gillibrand’s photo on their front page with the blaring headline “ANTI INMIGRANTE” (anti-immigrant)

Even New York Assemblyman Peter Rivera, a fellow Democrat and  the senior Hispanic in the state legislature, issued a statement condemning Gillibrand for among other things, wanting to “use local police to enforce federal immigration law, against the advice of state law enforcement groups,” and supporting “more walls and guards on our southern border.” 

She wanted more walls, but since then the direction of the winds shifted, the Democrats became the no borders party, and the spineless Gillibrand changed her stance.

How high does the body count have to get before she recognizes that a problem exists? A body count doesn’t really matter to the NY Senator, Gillibrand is a political hack who changes her positions whenever the wind direction changes.

Powerful Moment As Hundreds of Jews Take to NYC Streets & Demand ‘OMAR MUST GO!’ (Watch)

WOW!

To say Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is a friend of the Jews is like admitting Alec Baldwin does a good Trump impersonation on “Saturday Night Live.” It’s just not true, no matter how anyone attempts to spin it. In New York City, hundreds of Jews took to the streets to protest the embattled Congresswoman. Here’s the scoop… From Daily Wire: Hundreds of Jews gathered in Times Square in New York City on Monday evening to protest anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and chanted, “Omar must go!” “Following the highly-publicized allegations of the Minnesotan congresswoman’s antisemitism and her statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and billboard launch calling for her removal,” The Jerusalem Post reported. “Speakers at the event included former Democratic New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind and award-winning advocate of Christian Zionism Laurie Cardoza-Moore.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/HikindDov/status/1130940516810526720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130940516810526720&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47516%2Fomar-must-go-hundreds-jews-gather-protest-ilhan-ryan-saavedra ANOTHER: https://twitter.com/HikindDov/status/1130583678545944577?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130583678545944577&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47516%2Fomar-must-go-hundreds-jews-gather-protest-ilhan-ryan-saavedra Apparently, Omar has been holding secret fundraisers with Islamic groups that are tied to terror. Makes you wonder, was Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro right when she said Omar wasn’t “America first?” Food for thought, at the very least. From Free Beacon: Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view. […] Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an…

Cruz Calls Out Carrey For Vile Abortion Painting, So Jim Reveals Another Painting Aimed At Ted

Jim Carrey must have A LOT of free time, these days.

After Republican Governor Kay Ivey signed Alabama’s strict new abortion bill into law, far-left radical Jim Carrey went berserk. He chooses, these days, to lash out via his paintings. Maybe he’s still upset he hasn’t had a hit film in years? Here’s the painting featuring Ivey being aborted from a tube sucking out her brain: I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama. https://twitter.com/JimCarrey/status/1129796511611490304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129796511611490304&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F05%2F18%2Fpeople-are-loving-jim-carreys-graphic-painting-of-alabama-gov-kay-ivey-being-aborted%2F Texas Senator Ted Cruz let Jim know how he felt about the painting… This is not OK. Today’s Left: vicious, angry & consumed by hate. Instead of insults & dehumanizing rage, we should return to civility. I disagree w/ Carrey’s politics, but believe we should respect his humanity nonetheless. I wish he could reciprocate. #LoveIsStrongerThanHate https://twitter.com/tedcruz/status/1130515866712518656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130515866712518656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjim-carrey-has-unhinged-response-to-ted-cruz-after-insane-abortion-post%2F Carrey fired back at Ted with a new painting: https://twitter.com/JimCarrey/status/1130943200426745856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130943200426745856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjim-carrey-has-unhinged-response-to-ted-cruz-after-insane-abortion-post%2F Here’s what it says: “Some greasy Joe McCarthy wanna-be, who is shameless and will remain nameless, was lecturing me in the press about morality and civility after spending years in the Senate defending the rights of mass murderers to own AR-15s with which they massacre innocent children in their classrooms.” “I thought I must be dreaming, but I haven’t woken up yet,” Carrey continued. “I guess this hypocrisy is the new American Dream.” Jim must have a lot of free time these days. Back in November 2018, Carrey sent a tweet featuring one of his paintings showing support for then-Texas Democrat Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke (D). It was meant to disparage Cruz. Carrey failed in his attempt and Cruz fired back with the kill shot.
