Popcorn: College Students Don't Know How To React When They Learn About Obama's Immigration Policies

One of my favorite things Campus Reform does is go out to college campuses and get students' opinions on public policy. Campus Reforms' media director, Cabot Phillips, headed to a college campus to ask students how they felt about President Donald Trump's immigration and deportation policies. He recited a quote that was actually from President Barack Obama.


"I have a quote here that's been making the rounds on social media about the deportation of criminal illegal aliens," Phillips said before reading the Obama quote. "'We are a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our laws and I believe they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous. That's why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent and we're going to keep focusing on threats to our security.'"

The students had the typical, rather expected response.

"I think that policy comes from a place of white American nationalism," one student said. 

"Donald Trump has embraced this rhetoric of racism and xenophobia that is not beneficial to our country at all," another student said.

"This administration has totally not done anything moral," another student responded. 

"Crimes do not nullify your humanity," one student explained. "And people are coming here in search of opportunity."

When Phillips revealed that the quote was attributed to Obama, the students were shocked.

"I didn't expect it to be Obama either," one woman replied. When pressed on why she was surprised, she didn't have an answer. "Because I just don't know. It never occurred to me that it could be Obama."


This is just further proof that young people are influenced by the Democratic Party. They automatically assume that Democrats are good and Republicans are evil. When they're confronted with the reality that one of the people they look up to actually said something they disagreed with, they were shocked.

We need more conservative advocates on college campuses bringing these issues to light. You know why? Because then college students will be truly informed about public policy. They won't be spewing the same leftist talking pints that they're continually spoon-fed by their professors.
