Were Trump's State Of The Union Speeches The Best?

Bill Clinton’s Past Exposes Biden

Wonder what Bill and Hillary Clinton have to say about this today.

In his State of the Union address in 1995, former President Bill Clinton tackled significant issues: the economy and immigration. While his economic remarks, advocating for cutting spending and empowering Americans in the global economy, have become familiar Democratic rhetoric, his stance on immigration and border security presents a stark contrast.

Clinton acknowledged the concerns of Americans regarding the influx of illegal immigrants, highlighting the strain on job opportunities and taxpayer-funded services. His administration took decisive measures to enhance border security, including hiring more border guards, increasing deportations of criminal aliens, and cracking down on illegal employment and welfare benefits.

Fast forward to today, where President Biden is expected to address immigration in his State of the Union speech. Under his presidency, the U.S.-Mexico border has witnessed unprecedented crossings, with nearly 7.3 million recorded by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, not to mention an estimated 1.8 million “gotaways” who evaded detection.

Biden’s administration contends that the border is secure, attributing the high crossing levels to seasonal surges. However, the issue remains contentious, especially in light of recent events like the tragic murder of University of Georgia student Laken Riley.

In his 1995 speech, Clinton pledged to crack down on illegal crossings and increase deportations of criminal migrants. He emphasized the importance of upholding immigration laws while acknowledging America’s heritage as a nation of immigrants.

As the November general election looms, immigration and border security have emerged as top concerns for voters. The leading presidential candidates, Biden and former President Trump, hold divergent views on the issue. Voters will undoubtedly scrutinize Biden’s speech, listening for references to recent events, border security, and his stance relative to his predecessor, Trump.
