Clinton: I Will Not Target Sanctuary Cities
FOX ^

Posted on 05/01/2008 7:01:52 PM PDT by Sub-Driver

Clinton: I Will Not Target Sanctuary Cities by FOXNews.com Thursday, May 1, 2008

Hillary Clinton, in the second half of her first-ever interview with FOX News’ Bill O’Reilly, said that if elected president she would not crack down on so-called illegal immigrant “sanctuary cities.”

Clinton outlined several points of her foreign policy platform in the final segment of the interview, which aired Thursday. She declared there’s nothing left to achieve in Iraq and issued a stern warning about the threats Iran poses to that region once U.S. troops withdraw.

Asked about the controversial topic of sanctuary cities, Clinton swiftly responded, “No I’m not (going to target them). I’m not.”

She said she wants illegal immigrants to feel safe reporting crimes and that “sometimes you have two competing values.”

But she said federal immigration policy is “broken” and needs reform.

Never mind that the crimes they’re too afraid to report are being committed by their own and that the crimes would never have occurred if we had closed borders... but, whatever.

At least she as the freaking sack to say what Obama, and McCain are also very likely to agree with out loud while campaigning.

What a revolting election this is going to be.

QUISLING: a synonym for traitor, someone who collaborates with the invaders of his country.

Current federal law 8USC 1373(a) PROHIBITS SANCTUARY CITIES. It reads as follows:

"Notwithstanding any other provision of federal, state, or local law, a federal, state, or local government entity or official may not prohibit, or in any way restrict any government entity or official from sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual."

Pretty interesting responses by Hillary when BOR pressed her.

Slowly, slowly she began to concede to his view. Not completely, but there was definitely an unwilling concession on her part.

I don’t know about Dallas, but I live in San Antonio, and it is not a sanctuary city. Our boarders should have been shut down tight as of 12 September 2001. All three of the democrats running are of the same ilk.

Does that mean she won't target cities who reject any federal law, like a city that might decide to be a sanctuary from paying federal taxes....or is it just for cities that reject federal immigration laws?

When a government official says this they should be impeached immediately and then tried for treason and executed upon the obvious conviction. When that doesn't happen, a nation has lost its will to survive for much longer.

Yawn. When was the last time any law that was actually good for the country vigorously enforced? It is also illegal for illegals to be in this country... yet no one seems to be dealing with that either.

Gaston Oregon? Good grief that place is barely a town. Few people in Oregon even know it exists. Maybe a few hundred people live there. I guess it makes sense that it is a sanctuary city given the number of floral nursuries out there.

Where does she stand on the issue of an illegal immigrant’s “right” to protest? Where does she stand on the issue of an illegal immigrant’s “right” to drive a car? Where does she stand on the issue of an illegal immigrant’s “right” to go hunting? Where does she stand on the issue of an illegal immigrant’s “right” to bear arms?

how about the U.S. citizens of these “sanctuary cities” not having to submit their income tax to the Feds because said Feds are not doing their main job securing the border (and not $hit kicking the ILLEGALS back to where they came)?

McCain is the Amnesty King. He has been one of the principal authors of the last two amnesty bills. Clinton and Obama voted for them, but McCain wrote them.

Bill O is a wuss! He gave her a pass. Where was his follow up question? Maybe something like this...

So you are okay with sanctuary cities, right? So you would not enforce federal law if a city decides to give sanctuary to all bank robbers? After all they just might see a jaywalker that the police want them to report, is that right? What about a town that is willing to give sanctuary to people who break the law by refusing to pay income taxes? You okay with that? If you are going to pick and choose which of America’s laws you will enforce, then aren’t all lawbreakers covered under the equal protection law? If you are not prepared to abide by the oath of office that every American president must take, then tell the citizens right now that you think that oath is a crock and you believe that if you are president then you are a law unto yourself.

Yes, I am aware of McCains record on this, but we haven’t got any ‘satisfaction’ yet and Hillary and Obama have many more agendas to be feared in addition to amnesty.

Exactly! And there’s still plenty of time for McCain to SEE what his base wants if he is to be elected. He may alter a few of his stances.

Of course, President Bush has disappointed us in some things.

The line in Dylan's All Along the Watchtower "but you and I we've been through that and this is not our fate; so let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late" applies here.

I have produced graphic representations of the dozen most commonly cited failings of John McCain to uphold the conservative principles we see as essential.

That reality remains for us all, and is met by a bifurcated countervailing realpolitik which trumps an eleventh hour anti-McCain spasm.

There is in our 230-year-old Republic a quadrennial event as irresistable as death and taxes and that is the presidential election.

We have not failed to elect a president in those years divisible by four. We have three choices--two after Hillary steals another airport beacon, but I digress.

McCain will prosecute a preemptive war on the jihadist enemy which is the prime threat to Western Civilization. That it's aided and abetted by Russia and China does not change its danger, nor dilute the importance of McCain's signal shining difference from both The Twelfth Imam from Chicago and Frau Mao Al-Peron: he fights for America rather than treat with her enemies.

In Hussein we have a black racist Marxist-Leninist running dog of Islamist jihadists ready to open the gates of the city to the savage hordes.

In Frau Mao Saulinsky Eleanor Evita Cecescu we have the Peoples Republic's prime mole as well as the Saudis' willing bedmate, Saudis being the real terrorist marketers with their worldwide madrassah campaign outpacing Wal-Mart and Starbucks.

This is not a time to go wobbly--the default winner of a McCain defeat is the enemy who would kill us all.

There will be another hill with its battle on which say a Bobby Jindal victory will put conservative principles back in the driver's seat.

Recall that after Goldwater's defeat and Carter's victory came Reagan's successful destruction of the Evil Empire and the vindication of Reaganomics, a triumph of American Exceptionalism.

None of that means anything. That is the pretend world of campaign rhetoric
She will say anything to get past Obama and get the nomination and then presidency

I should put on a Napoleon hat and declare myself emperor of Louisiana.
This is as real as what Hillary is doing
