Sarah Palin Is Pro Amnesty For Illegal Aliens - Univision Interview [Old news, 2008]
Diggers Realm ^ | October 24, 2008

Posted on 08/09/2009 6:56:23 PM PDT by RebelYell1990

Sarah Palin finally came out and made her stance on illegal immigration clear. She is pro amnesty for illegal aliens. In an interview to Univision she stated unequivocally that she is for a pathway to citizenship. In the same interview she says she is against amnesty for illegal aliens. Have your cake and eat it to, I think that is called.

Back on the same day that John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential candidate I started investigating Palin's past on illegal immigration. I invited others to send in anything they found. There was nothing on the record. Many did write in and said that Laura Ingraham said that one time she was talking to Palin and she said she was against amnesty. That was the only statement anywhere that could be found.

Now we know that she is against amnesty, all the while she is for it with a "pathway to citizenship".

You see this is what is wrong with these people. They think they can be on both sides of the issue at once and that simply isn't possible. You are either against amnesty or you are not. If you are for a pathway to citizenship for those who have illegally entered our country then you are pro-amnesty as you have virtually absolved them of all of their illegality.

People have bashed me for questioning "the Palin". They wrote in to say that obviously she is against illegal immigration. This was all wishful thinking and like so many other issues that the politicians have avoided, until they take a clear stance don't assume anything (and even then, if they're only saying it look at their record).

Sarah Palin is in lock-step with John McCain when it comes to amnesty for illegal aliens. Her answers are almost indistinguishable from McCain's, Obama's or even the most pro-illegal alien congressman in the house, Luis Gutierrez, for that matter.

Read it and weep.

Univision

Univision: Governor, let me ask you about immigration. How many undocumented immigrants are there in Alaska? Sarah Palin: I don't know, I don't know. That's a good question.

Univision: As governor, how do you deal with them? Do you think they all should be deported? Sarah Palin: There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant - there are about 12 million of the illegal immigrants - not only economically is that just an impossibility but that's not a humane way anyway to deal with the issue that we face with illegal immigration.

Univision: Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants? Sarah Palin: No, I do not. I do not. Not total amnesty. You know, people have got to follow the rules. They've got to follow the bar, and we have got to make sure that there is equal opportunity and those who are here legally should be first in line for services being provided and those opportunities that this great country provides.

Univision: To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants? Sarah Palin: I do because I understand why people would want to be in America. To seek the safety and prosperity, the opportunities, the health that is here. It is so important that yes, people follow the rules so that people can be treated equally and fairly in this country.

...

Univision: What is your strategy? How are you planning to win the latino vote? Sarah Palin: I will tell you, I wish that there were more hours in the day so that we can get out there and to more of the communities with such the strong Latino vote that is out there and really tell them that we desire to work for them. We are asking them to hire us and let us work for them.

Sickening we can't find a real leader in this country who cares about Americans first.

You’re right, she’s for a “pathway to citizenship” for illegals currently in the country, which is the nice way of saying “anmesty”.

Be prepared to have her worshipers blister you for pointing this out, however.

Seems to me she said "a path to citizenship", which is the same path ALL immigrants have taken over the years; the LEGAL path.

She is totally against AMNESTY for the illegals already here, too.

Fine them; deport them, and let them get in line as they are supposed to....THAT is the "path" she's talking about, I think.

We need to spread the word on this site. I am concerned for America and support Conservatism and Constitutionalism in Government as the rest of us on this site do. And as Americans first and Conservatives second we must stand against any and all politicians who stand against the rule of law and nation sovereignty.

Sarah Palin: There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant -

ICE wouldn't have to physically round up all of them if our existing immigration laws were strictly enforced. Many would leave the country voluntarily in order to avoid being caught.

As most do, you INFER what YOU think she said; she clearly stated "NO AMNESTY", and the "path" is the legal one ALL immigrants take.

I don't consider myself a "worshiper" of her; just a Conservative who sees a legitimate conservative candidate, FAR from the RINO-types like Romney, McCain, Huckabee, etc., and FAR from the loonies like Ron Paul.

This does not sound like Sarah. This was after she joined McCain, and sounds like she was trying to straddle the fence McCain built--he is/was for amnesty, but also wants to follow the law--makes no sense.

I would like to hear a coherent answer today.

My own views have been evolving lately, just as my views on the “war on drugs” evolved. I now favor amnesty, for practical considerations. What I’m in favor of are people coming here to work. What I’m against is people coming here to live off the American welfare system (regardless of whether they also have a job, if they can work they shouldn’t be on welfare).

I would like to hear Mrs. Palin’s view now that she is not under lock and key by the McCain camp. I will reserve my opinion until she makes her view known away from that RINO. Right now she’s one of the few we have and I hope this is not her final stance on the matter.

Maybe she figures that since we are letting them vote and screw up the country with their socialism, we might has well put them on the path to the welfare office too.

A path to legality means amnesty until you sort them all out. A de facto amnesty when considering how long it would take. Ugg... they’re everywhere...

Why would you post an article from October 2008, to what, undermine what she has said about DeathCare, did it hurt you so much to see her punk Obama that you had to post this.
Secondly, this was from when she was with the McCain campaign, and she has said since on her twitter page that she is against illegal immigration. So I am going to wait to see what she says NOW as far as her opinion compared to what she said as McCain’s running mate

For a path to citizenship and against amnesty. Okay, so what's the problem?

There is a system in place for a “pathway to citizenship”. It’s called applying for American citizenship in your home country, then coming over when it’s granted.

My take on this...

This is two weeks before the election.

She had to have the same answer has McCain.

I would suggest the question should be asked again in 2009?

Sarah Palin finally came out and made her stance on illegal immigration clear. She is pro amnesty for illegal aliens.In an interview to Univision she stated unequivocally that she is for a pathway to citizenship. In the same interview she says she is against amnesty for illegal aliens. Have your cake and eat it to, I think that is called.

How do you come to your conclusion (in blue) based upon what she stated (in red?)

I believe the "pathway" to which she referred is called naturalization. I'm sticking with the red pill thank you and WILL be voting for Palin.

She didn’t say amnesty, then literally right after she says she supports a pathway for them, just like Kennedy, Graham, Bush and McCain said. Pathway=amnesty. Anything other than deportation is amnesty. She wants to make illegals legal citizens, period.

I hope she realizes that she cannot charm them into not voting Rat.

I would make this the deal to the illegales. Green card or permanent resident for as long as you have committed no serious crime, but cannot become citizen unless you first go back and live outside of the USA for 10 years.

I'm as big a fan of Sarah as anyone, but when she, like just about everyone else in this debate says that it's "inhumane" to send illegals back I want to tear my hair out. WHAT EXACTLY IS INHUMANE ABOUT TELLING SOMEONE WHO KNOWINGLY CAME HERE ILLEGALY, AND REMAINS HERE ILLEGALY, THAT THEY HAVE TO GO BACK TO THEIR RIGHTFUL HOME? AARGH! We're not talking about forced labor, or prison camps, or even monetary fines....Just go back to your RIGHTFUL HOME, and if you want to come back in, do it the right way!
