Bernie Sanders Stuns Progressives with Latest Border Declaration

Could this be an attempt by Sanders to better combat President Trump come the 2020 debates?

The democrats are trudging toward November of 2020, tackling one another on their way to the base of Mount Trump.

This will be no easy task for the democratic party, thanks to the constant infighting and mudslinging that they have engaged in during these still-early stages of the coming presidential election cycle.  With at least eighteen candidates already announced, and “Creepy Uncle Joe” still waiting in the wings for his inevitable entrance, the well-saturated field has been at each other’s throats for weeks now.

The clear frontrunner, at least at this early stage, is Bernie Sanders; an Independent Senator from Vermont who has long touted the ideologies of democratic socialism.

Now, in a stunning admission likely to rile the more progressive facets of his adopted party, Sanders has bucked the idea of “open borders”.

During a town hall in Oskaloosa, Iowa, Sanders was asked by an attendee about how the United States can afford to fund social services such as health care, with an open borders policy.

The attendee also claimed the Vermont senator is “an advocate for open borders.”

Sanders quickly rebuked the question.

“I’m afraid you may be getting your information wrong. That’s not my view,” Sanders said.

“What we need is comprehensive immigration reform,” he continued. “If you open the borders, my God, there’s a lot of poverty in this world, and you’re going to have people from all over the world. And I don’t think that’s something that we can do at this point. Can’t do it. So that is not my position.”

Is Sanders speaking the truth, or merely turning a hair to the right in order to potentially combat President Trump as 2020’s election approaches?

Only time will tell, but there is little doubt that the progressive left could be pushing pack on the aging candidate in the coming days.
