This Old Video of Reagan and Bush Talking About Immigration Is Making People Wonder WTF Happened to the Republican Party
During a debate in the 1980 presidential primaries, candidates George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan were asked a question about Mexican immigrants - and their answer might surprise you.
We've grown accustomed to the Trump campaign's rallying cry of "Build that wall!" However, the GOP of the 80s had a very different answer to the issue of undocumented immigrants in the United States. An audience member in Texas asked whether the candidates felt that the children of illegal aliens should be allowed to attend public schools for free or if their parents should have to pay for them.
