During a 2015 Town Hall in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton was asked what she thought about securing the United States border with Mexico. Her answer is SHOCKING.
When asked about her stance on illegal immigration and sealing the southern border, Hillary Clinton gave a surprising answer .
Watch the video below:
“I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in.”
This came after a New York Post piece on Hillary’s immigration flip-flops:
Every time Hillary Clinton opens her mouth, it seems, it’s to flip on one of her previous political positions.
This week, in her first televised interview since announcing her presidential candidacy, Clinton took the opportunity to denounce the entire GOP field — Jeb Bush and Donald Trump, in particular — on immigration.
“They don’t want to provide a path to citizenship,” she complained. “They range across a spectrum of being either grudgingly welcome or hostile towards immigrants.”
Of course, that’s a radical distortion of the Republicans’ views. With few exceptions, her GOP rivals make a strong distinction between legal and illegal immigration.
But the slur isn’t new for Clinton. Back in May, she suggested that when Republicans “talk about ‘legal status,’ that is code for second-class citizenship.”
But the big problem is that Hillary was singing a far different tune as recently as 2003 — sounding for all the world like Sen. Ted Cruz, probably the toughest immigration hawk among the GOP candidates.
“I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants,” the then-New York senator said on the John Gambling show, adding: “We’ve got to do more at our borders. And people have to stop employing illegal immigrants.”
So where does Hillary Clinton really stand on illegal immigration? She’d have to check the most recent polls before she told you.
