Interview with Sarah Palin (Palin *NOT* for Amnesty)
Univision ^ | October 26, 2008 | Univision

Posted on 02/10/2010 6:51:19 PM PST by Engineer_Soldier

To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?
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.

I got a response that I saw in "My Comments" that said Sarah supports amnesty. Investigating it, I found this. Read the entire interview in which she states that she's for McCain/Bush style amnesty.

Amnesty is the most dangerous thing we could do because it would automatically give voting rights to up to 40,000,000 socialist-leaning new Americans!

Maybe the anti-Palin nuts will find something that sticks.

But I doubt it.

If Palin’s for amnesty, then I would never be able to vote for her to become POTUS.

I don’t believe it. I have heard her state many times that she is for immigration, LEGAL immigration. She has also stated she is against illegal immigration, and wants to make it easier for people to come here legally.

I think they must have misquoted or transformed her words, because I find it hard to believe Palin would support amnesty, considering what other things she supports.

Perhaps you should read her more recent comments where she is firmly against amnesty.

My mama used to say, "You're either lying then or lying now. Which is it? Either way, trust is only free once, then you have to earn it back."

I don't know if she's a liar or a panderer, but I do know one thing: Amnesty is the most dangerous prospect in America that is on the table right now.

I’ve been hoping for the best in her, but after she endorsed McCain over Hayworth [what a mistake], I have been more curious about this.

This would be my first question if I ever had a chance to ask Palin something. If she’s for amnesty, I don’t want her entering the primary.

I realize she needed to position herself back during the McCain disaster. Now she’s free from that. She needs to convince us.

What's misleading about the header? It's an interview, not a paraphrase. This article is 100% her own words. Don't make a conspiracy of this. If she said it, then it's said. If you can contradict it, do so with honesty, not allegations.

Can you all give us a verified quote in which Governor Palin has repudiated her pro-amnesty position of the last campaign? I’ve seen it claimed several times so far on this thread but have never seen it actually proven.

Thank you for that. Her opposition to Hayworth is going to make it vital for her to not only be for safe borders, but to make it crystal clear.

Maybe you should have posted the relevant Q&A completely.

Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants?

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.

To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?

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.

Amnesty is a slap in the face to every immigrant that ever
came to this country legally and worked their tail off to
learn our language, and build a new life.

Amnesty no, a path to citizenship yes. Big difference.

You've selectively quoted her. Here's a quote from the interview:

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

As governor, how do you deal with them? Do you think they all should be deported?
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.

Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants?
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.

I didn’t find the amnesty quotes at the link, but when running with McCain, Palin expressed support for all his policies, which was completely appropriate.

As I recall McCain’s plan, it involved people returning to Mexico (or wherever) and waiting a period of years for a legal reentry. Correct me if I’m wrong. In any event, people would not even go near it because they are so opposed to amnesty.

If I heard that you robbed a bank back in 1982, would it make a difference when that truth came out? In the last election she was involved in, she stated she was for amnesty (less than two years ago). That means that she's either a flip-flopper or a panderer, neither of which appeal to me.

You realize you are misrepresenting her answer, do you not?

For those of you who didn't click through to this section of the interview (which dates to October, 2008 when Palin was McCain's VP nominee, by the way), here is what Palin actually said:

Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants?

"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."

You, sir, should be ashamed of yourself. Cheap trick.

I don’t have any quotes, I just know of interviews she did many months ago with different people, Rush, etc. There was an interview she did with someone, I forgot his name, where she went into detail about how she is against illegal immigration and that if they are here illegally they should be thrown out of the US, but I forgot the name of the guy

Palin’s pedestal is beginning to crumble.

Whoever is giving her advice is destroying her. A statement like this would get her booted from the Tea Party convention. American citizens and legal resident aliens have been shouldering the burden of paying for illegal line jumping invading leeches for far too long.

I’m not the one who is opposed to Hayworth being a senator.

My opinion on this is not etched in stone [other than being dead set for safe borders]. I’ve been supporting her all the way until the Arizona primary. Now my support for her is a little bit less.

I just ran a google. The top hits say she’s for amnesty. How does she correct that?

John McCain’s campaign likely told her to do the univision interview, seeing as she trusted them that they knew what they were doing. And if her position on amnesty was different than the Presidential candidates, then that would have caused big problems.

This interview was in October 2008 , when she was a vp candidate and had to support the presidential candidates position ,, that she stressed “LEGAL” and “Following the Rules” is important ,, she couldn’t have been any more against the McCain/Jorge Bush amnesty than that and remained on the ticket. You’ll have to do better than this to change my mind.

Taken directly from the link you provided with this story -

"Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants?"
