If you’re looking for proof that President Donald Trump is right in his stand against illegal immigration, look no further than vile comedian Bill Maher.
The host of HBO’s “Real Time” said Friday that Democrats will lose the 2020 election for the White House over immigration because of the party embracing migrants who illegally enter the country under the guise of compassion, according to Fox News.
Not only does the Democratic Party welcome illegal immigrants, but the party also serves as a siren calling out to Central America, enticing them to come with the promise of protection once they arrive, as seen in response to Trump mulling the possibility of relocating detainees to sanctuary cities.

Maher said he didn’t believe that immigration is a top 10 issue, but noted that Trump made it a “campaign issue” in 2016 and won.
“If it becomes a ‘woke’ contest, then the Democrats lose on this,” Maher said. “Yes, they look better, but it’s impossible not to look better next to him!”
Wendy Sherman, a guest panelist who served in the State Department in the Obama administration, said President Trump “created this immigration crisis,” claiming that tens of thousands of migrants show up on our doorstep monthly because he cut aid to Central American countries.
That and because he separates migrant families by “putting kids in cages,” which is liberal code for areas cordoned off by chain-link fences — it also occurred throughout the Obama administration, but was of little interest to them then.
Maher scoffed at the inane suggestion.
“This is what Democrats say, which only gets other Democrats,” he said. “This is not the speech that is going to win any [swing] voters. You’ve [already] got the compassion vote!”
It’s remarkable that the party can openly advocate for those who defy our immigration laws, at the expense of U.S. citizens, and get away with it. But for a complicit media, it would seem an impossibility.
Not that Maher crossed over from the dark side to support Trump, as he embraced the Democratic Party witch hunt to release the president’s tax returns.
“Monday is Tax Day. Or as Trump calls it ‘Monday.’ As we are all paying ours, he will not release his,” he said. “You know the IRS was supposed to get his tax returns this Wednesday. Didn’t happen, didn’t happen.”
Maher would go on to fault Attorney General William Barr for being Trump’s “lackey.”
“There are committees in Congress that are allowed by law to request any tax return. The IRS, they have to provide them,” he said. “This is what we used to call a law. We don’t have those any more. Trump finally has the lackey Attorney General he always wanted, William Barr.”
Of course, the law’s a little more complex than that, but why let facts get in the way of liberal feelings.
He also bemoaned Trump’s suggestion about taking illegal immigrant detainees and dumping them in sanctuary cities.
