According to Mrs. Clinton Donald Trump’s idea for a border wall is racism. But it was less than a year ago that she was bragging about voting for a border fence between the U.S. and Mexico. At another time she accused Mexico of pushing its people up toward the U.S.
The fence Hillary was bragging about in the video from November 2015 was not like the fence between two suburban neighbor’s houses.
The fence Hillary supported consisted of 700 miles of double layered fencing with barbed-wire on top, and room for a security vehicle to patrol between the layers, monitored by electronic equipment. Except for 36 miles of the seven-hundred-mile fence, what was eventually built is only slightly better than no fence at all.
The Secure Fence Act was introduced on Sept. 13, 2006 by Rep Peter King (R-NY) and passed Congress on a bi-partisan basis. In the House of Representatives, the Fence Act passed 283 -138 on September 14, 2006. On September 29, 2006, the Fence Act passed in the Senate 80 -19. Ms. Clinton voted to pass the bill. Perhaps she voted for the fence because she believed that double layered fencing is not racist, only walls.
