There was a time that Bill Clinton wanted a big fat, wall at the US-Mexican border and Democrats supported him en masse.
The above video I believe is a clip from Bill Clinton’s 1995 SOTU but then in Clinton’s 1996 SOTU, Clinton doubled with the full backing of Democrats:
The threats we face today as Americans respect no nation’s borders. Think of them: terrorism, the spread of weapons of mass destruction, organized crime, drug trafficking, ethnic and religious hatred, aggression by rogue states, environmental degradation. If we fail to address these threats today, we will suffer the consequences in all our tomorrows….
But there are some areas that the federal government should not leave and should address and address strongly. One of these areas is the problem of illegal immigration. After years of neglect, this administration has taken a strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders. We are increasing border controls by 50 percent. We are increasing inspections to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants. And tonight, I announce I will sign an Executive Order to deny federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants.
Let me be very clear about this: We are still a nation of immigrants; we should be proud of it. We should honor every legal immigrant here, working hard to be a good citizen, working hard to become a new citizen. But we are also a nation of laws….

Just last year during an interview with Jorge Ramos of Univision, Hillary Clinton had to admit that she once advocated for a wall at the US-Mexican border. Oh nope, let me walk that back. Clinton advocated for border security and “some of it was a ‘fence.'”
Progressives and their media propagandists are hypocrites, historically biased and irrational in their outrage.
