I remember when Democrats believed in borders

I'm so old I remember when Democrats cared about the country. We don't/ can't have a country without borders.

In 2005, Senator Barack Obama said, "We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country."

In 2006, Senator Barack Obama said, “Those who enter our country illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law. And because we live in an age where terrorists are challenging our borders, we simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked. Americans are right to demand better border security and better enforcement of the immigration laws,”
In 2006, Senator Joe Biden said, "Let me tell you something, folks, people are driving across that border with tons, tons--hear me, tons--of everything from byproducts from methamphetamine to cocaine to heroin, and it's all coming up through corrupt Mexico."

In 2008, Joe Biden said, “Now, I know I’m not supposed to say it that bluntly, but they’re the facts, they’re the facts. And so everything else we do is in between here. Everything else we do is at the margins. And the reason why I add that parenthetically, why I believe the fence is needed does not have anything to do with immigration as much as drugs.”

In 2009, Senator Chuck Schumer said, "Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple. . . When we say “undocumented worker,” we are refusing to say it’s wrong and the American people think we’re not serious about changing it. I think it is illegal. . . People who enter the United States without permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enter the U.S. legally." 
Listen carefully to what Schumer says about the American people believing they are serious about reform.

Perhaps these Democrats believe now that since they INVITED thousands to come, putting their lives in danger, subjecting women and children to trafficking that it's no longer illegal?
