Bernie Sanders, Chris Matthews ADMIT Most Carvan Migrants Not Elgibile for Asylum

Two of the more prominent voices on the far-left are admitting what most Americans have known for some time now – most of the illegal aliens that are a part of the migrant caravan looking to force their way into the United States are not eligible for asylum.

The admissions made by socialist Senator Bernie Sanders and MSNBC talking head Chris Matthews come in stark contrast to virtually every other comment made by Democrats on the subject.

On Monday night’s episode of Hardball, Matthews said “there’s a lot of poverty south of our border,” and agreed with a guest that “looking for jobs” is “not a basis to seek political asylum.”

“I know that,” Matthews admitted. “That’s the law.”

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, the ultra far-left Sanders echoed Matthews sentiment during an interview with CNN.

When asked if every migrant has a “credible claim” to asylum, Sanders responded by saying, “No, I don’t, and I think you have to look at it case by case.”

It’s rather interesting to see two of the more prominent voices on the far-left making drastically different statements on the asylum issue than virtually every other member of the Democrat party.

But will this change anything about the debate surrounding immigration?

Don’t hold your breath.
