Trump Lashes Hillary for Hypocrisy On Border Fence

Leading GOP Presidential contender Donald Trump took Hillary Clinton to the woodshed over her flip-flopping on the effectiveness of border fences.150629062326-donald-trump-june-16-2015-exlarge-169

“It is clear that the former Senator from New York and former Secretary of State has had a change of heart when it comes to walls and securing borders,” Trump tells Breitbart News.

“She supported a wall for Israel when it was politically expedient,” he said. “Now, she is for open-borders and flooding the country with unvetted refugees from countries that are exporting terrorism.”

“It’s bad enough that she lied to the American people about Benghazi, but now she wants to pander to those who might jeopardize our very homeland security,” he said. “This is hypocrisy at the highest level.”

Hillary has a long record of support for border walls not only for the United States but for Israel.

Clinton co-sponsored a July 2004 resolution that “urges the United States to vote against any further United Nations action that could delay or prevent the construction of the security fence and to engage in a diplomatic campaign to persuade other countries to do the same.”

The text of Clinton’s 2004 resolution stated that border fences are effective in keeping out terrorists and that terrorists trying to enter the country of Israel in disguise. Therefore, “the security fence is a necessary and proportional response to the campaign of terrorism by Palestinian militants.”

“Whereas Palestinian terrorists routinely disguise themselves as civilians, including as pregnant women, hide bombs in ambulances, feign injuries, and sequence bombs to kill rescue workers responding to an initial attack,” the resolution stated.

“Whereas a security fence has existed in Gaza since 1996 and that fence has proved effective at reducing the number of terrorist attacks and prevented many residents of Gaza from crossing into Israel to carry out terrorist attacks,” the resolution continued.

Sounds familiar to anyone watching the current border fence and Islamic refugee debate.  Too bad Hillary has done a 180 on the entire issue in the past decade.
