Clinton 2014: Children of Illegal Aliens Have To Go Back As Soon As Possible

—VIA Townhall

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is the topic of discussion. The Trump administration officially announced the long-awaited rescission notice for the unconstitutional Obama-era program that shielded illegal aliens who entered the U.S. as minors from deportation as long as they paid the $495 application fee and met all the requirements (i.e. no criminal record). It’s not just conservatives who thought the executive order under Obama was on legal shaky ground. Democrats, like Sen. Dianne Feinstein (CA) thought so, as did CNN host Chris Cuomo. The fact is the Trump White House rightly felt that they couldn’t legally defend the order, so the option was a nationwide injunction or a gradual phasing out, with a six-month enforcement delay that affords Congress time to do something for these 800,000 illegals that is constitutionally sound. Some within the GOP, like Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), want to legalize the 800,000 DREAMers, but pass the RAISE Act, which Cotton co-sponsored, that will overhaul our green card policy, stressing high-skills and impose a language requirement. It’s aimed to give cover to American workers.

The move, unsurprisingly, sent Democrats into tantrum mode, saying this was cruel and illegal, though all President Trump did was rescind an executive overreach using the exact same authority Obama did to enact this shaky program. Yet, as Democrats rail, they should be reminded that their former standard-bearer for 2016, Hillary Rodham Clinton, also felt that illegal alien children had to go back in 2014. During a CNN sit down with Christiane Amanpour, the former first lady was commenting on the then-influx of unaccompanied minors into the U.S. Clinton also stressed border security and the notion that we need to send a message that just you cross the border, doesn’t mean you’re allowed to stay outright. That’s so racist (sarc.) (via CNN) [emphasis mine]:

Yet, when she announced her 2016 run, Clinton did a 180-degree turn. In May of 2015, she sat down with a group of DREAMers in Rancho High School in Las Vegas, where she said it was time to offer a pathway to citizenship for these people. Clinton had announced her candidacy for the presidency in April of that year. Also in May of 2015, she also picked Lorella Praeli, a DREAMer, to head up Hispanic outreach for her 2016 campaign. And now, she’s all about DACA, despite saying she was “adamantly against illegal immigrants,” and wanted to do more on border security and cracking down on those who hire illegal aliens in 2003. Yes, you can say that Clinton’s evolution shows a woman who will say anything to win an election. It also shows the Democratic Party’s progression from pragmatism to insanity on the issue.
