Hillary’s With Us…If You Want A Destabilized World (Open Borders Edition)

The Clinton-Kaine Ticket Is Running To Keep Things Just The Way They Are, And That’s The Problem. 

Clinton Wants To Increase The Amount Of Syrian Refugees Into America By 550 Percent Without A Vetting Program

Clinton Called For Allowing An Upwards Of 65,000 Refugees. “Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Sunday that the United States should accept 65,000 refugees from Syria to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis created by the war there.”(Rebecca Kaplan, “Hillary Clinton: U.S. Should Take 65,000 Syrian Refugees,” CBS News, 9/20/15)

  • This Increase Is 550 Percent Larger Than Obama’s Original Plan. “‘Look, we’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II, and I think the United States has to do more, and I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in,’ Clinton said…A jump to 65,000 would be a 550 percent increase.” (C. Eugene Emery, “Donald Trump Says Hillary Clinton Wants To Let 500 Percent More Syrians Into The U.S.,” Politifact, 6/13/16)

Clinton Wants To Expand Obama’s Unconstitutional Executive Amnesty

In His Second Term, Obama Bypassed Congress To Propose Policies That Would Defer Deportations For DREAMers And Their Parents. “Obama announced in November that up to 5 million illegal immigrants would be eligible to be shielded from deportation — including undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents — as long as they met certain criteria. One of the signature initiatives of his presidency, the plan also expands a 2012 program that has deferred the deportations of more than 600,000 immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children and has granted most of them work permits… The fate of Obama’s executive action benefiting immigrant parents, known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA, will resonate into the next administration.” (Jerry Markon, “Obama Administration Stops Work On Immigrant Programs,”The Washington Post, 6/7/15)

The Policies Have Been Harshly Criticized For Enacting Amnesty. “DAPA and the expansion of DACA have been harshly criticized, for enacting amnesty and for the way Obama enacted them through executive orders, without authorization from Congress.” (Sarah Rumpf, “Rubio Affirms He’ll End Obama’s Executive Amnesty; Univision Interview Mistranslated,”Breitbart,4/18/15)

Clinton Has Praised Obama’s Immigration-Related Executive Actions And Said She Would “Do Everything Possible Under The Law To Go Even Further.” CLINTON: “I will fight to stop partisan attacks on the executive actions that would put DREAMers, including those with us today, at risk of deportation. And if Congress continues to refuse to act, as President, I will do everything possible under the law to go even further. There are more people, like many parents of DREAMers and others with deep ties and contributions to our communities, who deserve a chance to stay and I will fight for them. The law currently allows for sympathetic cases to be reviewed. Right now, most of these cases, have no way to get a real hearing. Therefore, we should put in place a simple, straightforward, accessible way for parents of DREAMers and others with a history of service and contribution to their communities to make their case, and to be eligible for the same deferred action as their children.” (Hillary Clinton,Remarks At An Immigration Round Table, Las Vegas, NV, 5/5/15)

Clinton Has Criticized Obama’s Limited Deportations As Too Strict

Clinton Called For An End To Obama’s Deportation Raids. “Hillary Clinton is calling on the Obama administration to end raids aimed at deporting Central Americans who entered the United States illegally. Clinton says the holiday-season roundups were ‘mass deportations’ that are sowing ‘division and fear.’ She says she would ensure government lawyers for all unaccompanied minors and increase funding for immigration courts. Clinton is promising to ‘do everything possible to provide due process.’” (Lisa Lerer, “Clinton Calls On White House To Stop Deportation Raids,”The Associated Press,1/11/16)

In The March Democratic Debate, Clinton Vowed She Will Not Deport Children Or Family Members. UNIVISION’S JORGE RAMOS: “But again, yes or no, can you promise tonight that you won't deport children, children who are already here?” CLINTON: “I will not deport children. I would not deport children. I do not want to deport family members, either, Jorge.” (Univision Democratic Debate, Miami, FL, 3/9/16)

Clinton Vowed To Close Detention Centers.“Our prison system is the federal government’s responsibility—and shouldn’t be contracted out to private corporations. As president, Hillary will close private prisons and immigrant detention centers.” (Hillary For America, Accessed 7/25/16)

Clinton “Faulted” President Obama For His “Strict Enforcement Of Deportation Laws.”“Hillary Clinton faulted her former boss, President Barack Obama, for his strict enforcement of deportation laws in a Telemundo interview that aired Monday. She said as president she would be ‘much less harsh.’” (Dan Merica, “Clinton Faults Obama For Strict Deportation,”CNN, 10/5/15)

Despite The Supreme Court’s Ruling That Obama’s Deferred Deportation Policies Were Unconstitutional, Clinton Doubled Down On Her Support For The Policies

In June, The Supreme Court’s 4-4 Decision Blocked The Obama Administration From Enacting Executive Orders That Would Protect More Than 4 Million Illegal Immigrants From Deportation. “The Supreme Court’s 4-4 deadlock blocked the Obama administration policy that would have offered more than 4 million undocumented immigrants a chance to remain in the country without fear of deportation.”(Josh Haskell and Liz Kreutz, “Hillary Clinton: Supreme Court Immigration Decision ‘Could Tear Apart’ Millions Of Families,”ABC, 6/23/16)

Following The Ruling, Clinton Doubled Down On Her Support For The Policy.“In a statement released in both English and Spanish, the presumptive Democratic nominee reiterated her belief that President Barack Obama is within his constitutional rights to use executive actions. She said the decision underscores the high stakes in the presidential election.”(Josh Haskell and Liz Kreutz, “Hillary Clinton: Supreme Court Immigration Decision ‘Could Tear Apart’ Millions Of Families,”ABC, 6/23/16)
