And did so with a string of expletives that would make a Teamster blush. More on that latter.
When Wednesday night’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump rolls around, Trump may want to ask Clinton — who has threatened to increase the influx of refugees to the U.S. by 500% — about her husband’s very different stance when he was the governor of Arkansas in the 1980s.
Bubba vehemently protested President Jimmy Carter’s orders to house Cuban refugees in his state. Then-Cuban President Fidel Castro faced a bad economy in the country. Because of the country’s economic problems, he allowed 125,000 Cubans leave and go to America.
Carter, who at the time said Americans must welcome the refugees with “open arms,” told Clinton Arkansas’s Fort Chaffee should hold some of them.
The fort had been used as a training and prisoner of war camp during World War II, holding almost 3,000 German POWs. In the late 70s, it served as a place to process Southeast Asia refugees and connect them with American sponsors.
This time, Carter ordered Clinton to use it to house almost 20,000 Cuban refugees.
Publicly, it seemed that Clinton was in favor of the idea, telling Arkansans that the country “must accept our responsibility as the leader of the free world.” In private, Clinton objected and tried to get around it.
