Old Clip Surfaces That Could Completely Sink Amy Klobuchar Campaign

The Iowa caucuses came and went with only one real headline to speak of:  The contest was an unmitigated disaster that could see the Hawkeye State’s unique process tossed to the side in 2024.

At the end of the event, there was only a rudimentary idea of who could have actually won, and even those results were taken with a grain of salt after it was discovered that the surprisingly successful Pete Buttigieg had a connection to the manufacture of the faulty voting app used for the caucuses.

Then, when New Hampshire rolled around on Tuesday, the left seemed ready to propel third place finisher Senator Amy Klobuchar to the forefront of the race – likely in an effort to tamp down the excitement surrounding anti-establishment figure Bernie Sanders.

Unfortunately for Klobuchar, with this newfound fame comes enhanced scrutiny as well, and the archive departments of our nation’s newsrooms have uncovered some not-so-flattering clips of the Democratic darling.

In 2006, while running for the U.S. Senate, Amy Klobuchar held the same positions on illegal immigration as President Donald Trump — supporting a physical barrier at the U.S.-Mexico border and mandatory E-Verify to ban employers from hiring illegal aliens.

Unearthed footage of a 2006 U.S. Senate candidate debate at the University of St. Thomas reveals Klobuchar once held similar views on illegal immigration as Trump, policies she now avidly opposes as she runs for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination.

“I do believe that we need more resources at the border and that includes a fence,” Klobuchar said. “What we have now, we have people waiting to come in legally. Thousands of people waiting to come in legally to this country, and we have people coming in illegally. That’s not right. We need to get order at the border.”

As Klobuchar battles for the 2020 nomination, however, the one-time long-shot has detailed her support of amnesty for undocumented migrants – something that the Democratic Party will likely take a hard stance on as the primary process rolls along.
