So Hillary Thinks Opposing Illegal Immigration Is Like Criminalizing Jesus?
(Hillary) Clinton renewed her pledge to oppose a bill passed in December by the House that would make unlawful presence in the United States _ currently a civil offense _ a felony. The Senate is set to consider a version of that legislation, as well as several other bills seeking to address the seemingly intractable issue of immigration reform.
Surrounded by a multicultural coalition of New York immigration advocates, Clinton blasted the House bill as “mean-spirited” and said it flew in the face of Republicans’ stated support for faith and values.
“It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures,” Clinton said, “because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself.
…Among other things, Clinton said she would support legislation that would strengthen U.S. borders, boost technology to secure the borders, and seek greater cross-border cooperation with Mexico and other neighboring countries.
She also called for new enforcement laws, including penalties for employers who exploit illegal immigrants, as well as a system to allow the roughly 11 million illegal immigrants currently living in the United States to earn their citizenship.”
So, stopping illegal aliens is like criminalizing Jesus? If Pat Robertson said something this staggeringly dumb, it would make front page news all across the nation.
Hillary Clinton has the same problem that John Kerry and Howard Dean have: they come across as hamhanded and insincere when they talk about religion. The reason that’s the case is because they’re trying to do something they regularly accuse Republicans of doing: exploit people’s religious beliefs for their own political gain.
Also, it’s worth noting that Hillary’s position on illegal immigration has become as much of a mishmash as John Kerry’s position on the war in Iraq was during the run-up to the election. Keep in mind that this is the same woman, who, back in 2003, said:
“I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants.”
That was then, now according to Hillary, you’re anti-Jesus if you want to get rid of illegals. But wait, since Hillary is calling for “new enforcement laws,” does that mean she’s anti-Jesus herself?
Of course, what Hillary wants to do here is have it both ways: she wants to be applauded for being tough on illegal immigration, but she also wants to cater to the liberal base that wants to turn illegal aliens into more votes…and make no mistake about it, that’s exactly why Democrats want a “path to citizenship” for illegals. If you want a never ending flood of illegals to come into the US where they’ll be rewarded with citizenship for breaking our laws, let Hillary Clinton and her Democratic ilk get back into power and that’s exactly what you’ll see.
