Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips turned the tables on a group of students who believed that President Donald Trump issued remarks revealing a controversial stance on immigration.

They were surprised when they found out Trump wasn’t the author of the comments.

Philips visited college campuses in order to gauge students’ thoughts on an immigration quote he posed as belonging to Trump — except former President Barack Obama actually made the remarks in 2014.

Phillips said, “Donald Trump announced this past week week that he would be urging ICE and other administration authorities to seek out people living here illegally that have broken the law to deport them.”

“I have a quote here about the deportation of criminal illegal aliens,” he added.

The quote is:

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 last six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent and we’re going to keep focusing on threats to our security.

Here are some of the more interesting responses:

  • “Uhh, I think that policy comes from a place of white American nationalism.”
  • “Donald Trump has embraced this rhetoric of racism and xenophobia — that is not beneficial to our country at all.”
  • “This administration has totally not done anything moral.”
  • “I think that’s a bad decision ’cause the United States should be open to immigrants.”

Phillips then turned around and told the students, “I’m gonna show you the person that said that quote.”

Here’s how they responded:

  • “[Q]uite surprising — I thought it was from Trump.”
  • “I didn’t expect it to be Obama.”
  • “It just shows the hypocrisy in politics.”
  • “I don’t know a ton about Obama’s deportation policies, but I imagine that they were a lot more humane than the ones currently going on.”

    It is truly frightening how stupid these college students are. Free college will only put more of them out in the real world if they graduate.

    These fools, every human being on the planet has preferences of who they prefer to be with, which makes everyone on the planet racist by their definition. So if every human is racists, then none of us are. These morons are just childish name callers making an issue where no issues exists.

      It’s so sad to see,how these brainwashed kids seem to swallow any kind of left wing propaganda.These kids are responding like trained parrots and completely unable to use their own brain.They seem to have a short memory as well and o idea of history.But it’s an easy task for leftist teachers to influence kids born with a screw loose.Add to this that taxpayers have to pay for their “education”.

    can’t blame the school for all of it.. If the kids lived at home and had discussions around the dinner table, they may know more today.
