Michael Bennet Claims He Doesn’t Know What “Open Borders” Means

One of the biggest revelations coming out of John Podesta’s emails has been Hillary Clinton’s apparent dream of open borders. Speaking in 2013, Hillary Clinton told Brazilian Banco Itau that she dreamed of a Western Hemisphere in which there were “open borders”:

“‘My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, sometime in the future with energy that’s as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere,’ Clinton reportedly said to investors in a paid speech she gave to Brazilian Banco Itau in 2013.”

While the idea of open borders throughout the Western Hemisphere seems like a simple concept to understand, it was apparently too complicated for Senator Michael Bennet last night. When questioned about it, he played dumb and asked for an explanation:

MODERATOR: “How about Hillary’s dream of open borders?” BENNET: “Huh?” Moderator: “Open borders was the other half of her dream–” BENNET: “I don’t know what that means, and if you can define it for me I’d be happy to answer.”

If Bennet wanted to duck the question, he should have come up with a better response than that. Colorado voters deserve an answer to this vitally important question.
