Clinton And Sanders Spar On Who Can Pander To Illegal Aliens The Most

Illegal aliens cannot vote. Not legally. And they shouldn’t be in the country to start with. But, this is the Democratic Party, which cares little for the rule of law when they can score political points and attempt to make new Democrat voters

(The Hill) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton argued that Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) defense for his 2007 vote against immigration reform doesn’t square with reality as the two sparred during Wednesday’s Univision debate.

Sanders has said that he voted against that bill because its guest-worker program was akin to “modern slavery.”

But Clinton pushed back.

“I think it’s very hard to make the case that Ted Kennedy, Barack Obama, me, La Raza, United Farm Workers, Dolores Huerta, leaders of the Hispanic community would have supported a bill that actually promoted modern slavery,” Clinton said.

All those people were putting illegal aliens ahead of everything else. That’s what Democrats do. This was during the “Shamnesty” debate, which would have pretty much legalized the illegals while pretending to secure the border. Sanders hit back at Hillary regarding her flipping and flopping on giving driver’s licenses to illegals

“When you talk about efforts to assist immigrants, Secretary Clinton prevailed upon the governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer — who wanted to do the right thing to provide driver’s licenses to those who are undocumented — she said, ‘Don’t do it,’ and New York still doesn’t do it,” Sanders said.

“I worked with officials and undocumented people in Vermont who do have the ability to get driver’s licenses.”

Sanders might have worried more about the meth and heroin problems in Vermont. Clinton decided to top that with a promise

“I do not have the same policy as the current administration does,” Clinton said. “I think it’s important that we move to a comprehensive immigration reform but at the same time stop the raids, stop the round-ups, stop the deporting of people who are living here doing their lives, doing their jobs.”

Ramos pressed her further at that point.

“I want to be very specific,” Ramos said. “So you’re telling us tonight that if you become president, you won’t deport children who are already here?”

“I will not,” Clinton replied.

“And that you will not deport immigrants who don’t have a criminal record?” Ramos asked.

“That’s what I’m telling you,” Clinton said.

Rule of law? Protecting the United States? Pffft. That’s so old school.

You do have to give moderator Jorge Ramos credit, he asked tough questions. He asked Hillary about Benghazi, and she called the families of those killed in Benghazi liars. He also asked her tough questions on her server, asking who authorized it being set up

RAMOS: Secretary Clinton, I want to disclose once again that my daughter Paula works for your campaign. And now I have a question about your emails. Your Republican opponents say that those emails have endangered our national security. When you were secretary of state, you wrote 104 emails in your private server that the government now says contain classified information according to The Washington Post analysis.

That goes against a memo that you personally sent to your employees in 2011 directing all of them to use official email, precisely because of security concerns. So it seems that you issued one set of rules for yourself and a different set of rules for the rest of the State Department.

So who specifically gave you permission to operate your email system as you did? Was it President Barack Obama? And would you drop out of the race if you get indicted?

Your daughter will soon be let go for some reason, Jorge. Hillary, of course, gave her standard answers

CLINTON: Well, Jorge, there’s a lot of questions in there. And I’m going to give the same answer I’ve been giving for many months. It wasn’t the best choice. I made a mistake. It was not prohibited. It was not in any way disallowed. And as I have said and as now has come out, my predecessors did the same thing and many other people in the government. But here’s the cut to the chase facts. I did not send or receive any emails marked classified at the time. What you are talking about is retroactive classification. And the reason that happens is when somebody asks or when you are asked to make information public, I asked all my emails to be made public. Then all the rest of the government gets to weigh in.

People go to jail for making mistakes. A young member of the Navy was prosecuted for taking a selfie on a US submarine and sending it to his girlfriend. Because things on a submarine are classified. And the server was prohibited. Her predecessors, as we’ve discussed numerous times, did not set up their own server, and, yes, using outside email was wrong. The markings do not matter, the fact that everything is born classified does. If things were retroactively deemed classified, well, that’s a good reason not to be using an insecure server under her private control.

The Democratic Party: where the rule of law goes to die.
