Clinton Lies, Claims ALL Her Grandparents Were Immigrants–But They Weren’t

Trying desperately to pander to Hispanics, Hillary Clinton yesterday made the outrageous claim that her grandparents were “all” immigrants. Her claim is simply false and easily checked.

At an event in Iowa, Clinton told a group, “All my grandparents, you know, came over here.” But this is simply not true.

Only her paternal grandfather, Hugh Rodham Sr., immigrated to the United States, according to Buzzfeed. Her paternal grandmother, Hanna Jones Rodham, was born in Pennsylvania, records show.

Clinton’s maternal grandparents, Della Howell and Edwin Howell, were both born in Illinois, according to records.

This isn’t the first time she has delivered this lie.

Clinton gave similar comments in a speech in Louisville, Ky., last April, saying her paternal grandmother “immigrated with her family as a young girl to Scranton and went to work–very young–in a silk mill.”

Will the media call her on this?
