Illegal Immigration Politics

Hillary Clinton Completes MAJOR Flip-Flop on Illegal Immigration!

 

Hillary Clinton was in Las Vegas on Tuesday pandering to Latinos and promising them that if she’s elected she’ll go even further than the Obama administration has in protecting lawbreakers.

“I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship for you and for your families across our country.

I will fight to stop partisan attacks on the executive actions that would put DREAMers, including those with us today, at risk of deportation. And if Congress continues to refuse to act, as president I would do everything possible under the law to go even further.

That is just the beginning. There is much more to do to expand and enhance protections for families and communities to reform immigration enforcement and detention practices so they are more humane, more targeted, and more effective. And to keep building the pressure and support for comprehensive reform.”

 

 

This is very different from what she said back in 2003.

In a February 2003 interview that went unreported except by NewsMax, Clinton told WABC Radio’s John Gambling, “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants.”

“Clearly, we have to make some tough decisions as a country,” the top Democrat warned. “And one of them ought to be coming up with a much better entry and exit system so that if we’re going to let people in for the work that otherwise would not be done, let’s have a system that keeps track of them.”

Taking a position far to the right of the Bush administration, Sen. Clinton said she would support “at least a visa ID, some kind of an entry and exit ID. And, you know, perhaps, although I’m not a big fan of it, we might have to move towards an ID system even for citizens.”
