For the Wall Before He Was Against It

It's hard to separate reality from parody where John Kerry is concerned. Here is his position on the construction of a border wall between the US and Mexico:

Sen. John Kerry joined most of his Democratic colleagues last week in voting to build a wall along 370 miles of the U.S.-Mexican border.

But he now says that after the wall is built it should be taken down as soon as possible.

"I voted for it," Kerry acknowledged Friday while speaking to the New England Council breakfast.

But in quotes picked up by the Boston Herald, the Massachusetts Democrat added: "If I were making the long-term decision, I’d announce, you know, hopefully it’s a temporary measure, and we can take it down as soon as we have enough people" to guard the border.

Unbelievable. (Hat tip to Alarming News.)

No, it would be unbelievable if he said anything else.

It's quite impossible to accept that any of the pro-open borders/amnesty Senators (or the president, for that matter) truly support any restrictions of any type. The wall only made it into the legislation to help the Senate lead its agenda with a lot of security-oriented noise about fighting against illegal migration. Like the president's duplicitous speech, the wall gave amnesty supporters in the blogosphere and elsewhere a talking poing.
