Barack Obama has claimed that Americans who oppose the open borders agenda of Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration are racist.
According to the former president, people oppose the Democrats’ mass immigration policies because the illegal migrants flooding border communities are “people of darker shades” and not because of soaring crime or economic concerns.
During a meeting of Hispanic realtors in San Diego, California on Sunday, Obama tried to smear opponents of mass migration.
“Right now, the biggest fuel behind the Republican agenda is related to immigration and the fear that somehow America’s character is going to be changed if, people of darker shades, there are too many of them here,” Obama told the crowd.
Obama’s divisive claims of racism sought to hide the public opposition to migration’s economic impact.
According to his comments posted in a September 25 report by the San Diego Union-Tribune, Obama said:
“I wish I could be more euphemistic about it except [they’re] not that subtle about it — they’re just kind of saying it.
“You hear it on hard-right media, you hear it from candidates and politicians, you hear things like ‘great replacement theory’ — I mean, this is not subtle.
“Unless we’re able to return to a more inclusive vision inside the Republican Party, it’s going to be hard to get a bill done.”
The Democrat ex-POTUS also argued that public opposition to mass migration is more dangerous than government support for the nation-changing open borders policies.
“When you have that kind of rhetoric floating around out there, we’ve seen in history that is dangerous rhetoric.
“It’s dangerous wherever it appears and it’s dangerous here in the United States.”
Thank you @garynahrep for asking the comprehensive inmigration reform question during the @POTUS44 interview. Our immigration system is broken. We need this conversations to stay from and center for the wellbeing of our community and country. #NahrepatLat #Immigration pic.twitter.com/0HSZgippfX

Since January 2021, Biden and his pro-migration border chief have extracted roughly 3 million migrants from poor countries into the U.S. economy via the southern border, likely in violation of federal law.
