Hillary Clinton on Illegal Immigrants: Confusion

March 9, 2006


Hillary Clinton says she’s against illegal immigration. But…

This week Senator Clinton said

Some Republicans are trying to create a “police state” to round up illegal immigrants.

In November she said the United States should give Hurricane Katrina funds to help illegal immigrations.

Mrs. Clinton urged Chertoff to “terminate removal proceedings against those [illegal immigrants] who were placed in proceedings after they sought assistance.”
Other Senate Democrats who signed onto Mrs. Clinton bid to obtain Katrina aid for illegal immigrants include Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Maria Cantwell, Barack Obama, Russ Feingold, Daniel Akaka, Frank Lautenberg, Joe Lieberman, Carl Levin, John F. Kerry, Chris Dodd, Pat Leahy and Jon Corzine.

In December 2004 she said:

In an interview on WABC radio, she said: “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants.” “Clearly, we have to make some tough decisions as a country, 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,” she said.

Right after 9/11:

… in the Congressional Record of Jan. 21 Senate Amendment 233 forbids any federal funds appropriated under the act from being used to remove, deport, or detain illegal aliens who happen to be related to victims of Sept. 11.. . The Hillary amendment will prevent the Department of Homeland Security from taking any action to deport spouses or children of Sept. 11 victims who came to the US illegally and used phony documents.
