Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) appears to be an inveterate liar.
In recent days he’s said that the President “repeatedly” used the word “sh**hole” when speaking of 3rd world nations, while others present at the meeting deny that he ever said any such thing.
Then he said this:
When it came to the issue of, quote, “chain migration,” I said to the president, do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African-Americans believe they migrated to America in chains and when you talk about chain migration, it hurts them personally.
He said, “Oh, that’s a good line.” And then when I talked to him about the impact this has on family unification in a nation that values families with the flag as the most important symbols of our future, they scoffed at this notion. It was a heartbreaking moment. But I will tell you this, I’m not going to quit. I have a singular mission. And the mission is this: To give these DREAMers and as many members of their families as possible a chance to be part of America’s future in a legal status.
This came in a much longer rant where he called the President hate filled, vile, and racist. The only problem is that Durbing himself has repeatedly used the same phrase, “chain migration,” in past speeches, media appearances an interviews.
Here’s the Senator using the term “chain migration” in a speech where he promises that DACA wouldn’t lead to more chain migration… except that it did. (If you’re counting, this is at least the third time already that we’ve heard Durbin lying.)
I guess it’s okay for the Senator and his liberal friends to use the term when lying to the American people, but it’s not okay for President Trump to say it when he’s telling the truth.
