President Trump retrieved an old video of Barack Obama speaking in favor of a strict immigration policy and surprisingly tweeted out his support for the statement Tuesday afternoon.

Heller has been endorsed by President Trump, who just on Saturday stumped for him in Elko, Nevada, on the same night that Obama's vice president, Joe Biden, campaigned in the state for Rosen.

"We simply can not allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants into this country", Obama said.

Democrats weren't likely to appreciate the newfound comity though, as Mr. Trump was largely trolling them and/or pointing out how far the Democratic Party has changed on the issue of immigration.


"The consequences of you staying home would be profoundly risky for our country, for this democracy", Obama said.

He said that there was only one way to control abuses of power and that was the voters, adding that Trump's pressuring US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to pursue political rivals is not what should be done in the US but rather is typical of some "dictatorships". It's totally possible that Trump's comment was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, but still - it's not every day that you see Trump say he's on the same page with Obama on anything. "We have Strong Borders and will never accept people coming into our Country illegally!" Additionally, during many of these downturns, Congress was at least partly controlled by Democrats.

Its clearly common sense when Obama says we need to enforce our laws of immigration and border security, but when President Trump says the same thing, its offensive and mean-spirited.

In today's polarized political climate, finding a bipartisan agreement on illegal immigration becomes harder and harder. Look at what they're saying they're going to do if you send it back for two more. The problem is not just with amnesty but with the structure of our legal-immigration system.
