Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton: Deport The Illegal Children Back To Central America
Posted on 06/18/2014 1:12:15 AM PDT by zeestephen
Probable Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton broke with President Obama on a key policy issue Tuesday, claiming the unprecedented number of illegal children flooding into the United States must be deported and returned to their families in Central America.

Not one GOP presidential candidate has had the courage to suggest this.
Instead, the now "centrist" Hillary Clinton has advanced the idea.
Democrats and Hispanic organizations will swarm onto this position.
This will completely change the "debate" on immigration and Amnesty.
The Democrats will now be the "reasonable" Party.
All because of Republican political cowardice and collusion with businesses that want cheap foreign labor.
She must have seen some polling results...
Wow, now this is an interesting turn of events.
Actually, Sarah Palin said to send them home also.
I believe she said something to the effect that our first concern should be the jet fuel to send them home.
Governor Palin did in a Facebook post.
This is something that I expect was poll-tested by Hillary’s team.
Disagree. I think it’s actually a good thing for the GOP that Hillary is saying this *first*. Whenever someone in the GOP makes a commensense pronouncement like this, we get flamed as hard-hearted, evil, etc. But now that Hillary has broken ground here, every GOP candidate can say it too. (And of course it should not only be said early and often, but acted upon!! Immediately!!!!)
But, eh, what difference does it make?
We’ll see if this becomes a sustained position by HRC, or just a one off reply in an interview.
Smart move. Too bad bonehead & cantor are still clueless.
The right won’t vote for her and now the left will despise her.
Hillary Clinton studied the Eric Cantor defeat.
She sees what every other Democrat, and many Republicans, refuse to see, or refuse to admit.
Americans are angry about Immigration, both legal and illegal.
The ONLY thing she will propose is to send back the kids.
She will win huge admiration for this from Independent voters and center-left Republicans.
She will “stand firm” against bogus criticism delivered by various factions in the Democrat Party.
All the while, she and every other Democrat will continue to push Amnesty for the illegals already here.
All the while, our current immigration policy of creating 600,000 new Democrat voting citizens each year will continue, untouched.
This move is completely brilliant.
But Sarah Palin is not running for president.
You must have seen the Hillary announcement I missed.
Bill Clinton had to deal with the issue through his whole career.
He was also hurt by President Jimmy Carter’s decision to sending thousands of Cuban refugees, some unruly, to a detention camp at Fort Chaffee, outside Fort Smith in Sebastian County in western Arkansas. (See Mariel boatlift.)
Didn’t Haitian “boat people” surge of early 90s end only when Bush started sending them back—a policy Clinton continued?
What’ll happen when border detainees (most of whom are 15-17-y-o boys) riot at Army base? Clinton lost ‘80 election b/c of Marielito riot
wow... Hillary is for SURE running!
Let the cracks in “The Party” widen.
As Hillary seeks to put some distance between herself and some of the exceptionally indefensible actions of this administration, she risks aggravating Obama loyalists.
The bad feelings of the last primary when Obama and Hillary were enemies could well be reignited when it comes down to every pantsuit or pantywaist for themselves.
If polls start to dive more sharply, or serious indictments begin to be handed out (as well they should be), the rats will flee the sinking ship and step all over each other to save themselves.
Then we can pop popcorn, and enjoy the show.
It was posted at The Daily Caller just a couple hours ago.
I was on my way bed, clicked in to scan the headlines at DC, and there it was.
Feels like a really big story to me.
its not unlikely this entire “crisis” was manufactured so hellary could ride in and demonstrate ‘leadership’.
have we forgotten the so-called secret meeting she had at the white hut with obozo a couple of weeks ago ?
It’s one thing to say it; it’s another thing to do it. Democrats are People of the Lie. BO said what people wanted to hear then did the opposite. Transparency, bipartisanship, shovel-ready, keep your health plan/doctor...
I think the libs should adopt the kids. That would be amnesty in spades. Everyone would feel so good...
Certainly answers the question.
This is no different than what McCain said in his ads during his last re-election to the senate, “Build the dang fence”.
Once elected, I wonder if she’ll be more of a “triangulator” like Hubby, or just a naked extreme ideological leftist who doesn’t care like Obama? I’m sure she’ll be leftist either way and would far prefer no Democrat in the WH.
Forked tongue syndrome.
Send ‘em back if their it can be determined who/where their parents are. It’s in no way a commitment and the ‘rats know very well it’s just politicking.
She lies like Barry. Don’t believe a word she says.
Especially “at this point”
It’s more likely she prefers to sell them into slavery to Indonesian sweat shops.
Sure, brilliant. Great political move and it will ‘guarantee” her the WH, blah, blah, blah.
She was also “unbeatable” in 2008”, how did that work out? Conservatives are truly amazing! They will take the smallest issue and a single comment by a politician and announce it to be the biggest event in recent political history and a SURE thing to change the game in a major way.
People on this site claim Clinton had a soft ball interview on FNC. Actually FNC handled it perfectly. Had the gone after Clinton, tried to blind side her or played the sleazy gotcha politics the libs are famous for there would have been hysteria in the lib media with all accusing FNC of misogyny, of ganging up on poor Hillary and it would have been in the news for days if not weeks as clips were replayed again and again.
The interview is over and the Left has no ammunition to use against the Right or FNC. One interview in which she didn’t commit gaffe hardly makes up for all in her past and recent interviews in which she did not do well.
I think this is a pretty calculated move that is designed to provide confusion on a number of fronts.
1) I think that she realizes that even though the Democrats will probably win on Amnesty in the near future (with more than willing help from the GOPe leadership), that won’t happen until after 2016 so the Hispanic vote isn’t who she’s going after as a ‘voter.’
She is going after that Democrat - the one who used to be called Reagan Democrat who feels strongly about sovereignty, etc. She has calculated that they outnumber those Reconquista Hispanics who will be influenced by an impotent endorsement of this “child amnesty.”
2) By co-opting this position before any RINO with balls enough to do so, or most any viable Conservative for that matter, she ‘owns’ it, and she will have that for the next two years as her bona fides on tough immigration. Frankly, there isn’t a GOP approved hopeful that will even touch that position. And, besides, nothing in history - nothing - says that once spotted, the Democrat leopard won’t change them when convenient and appropriate.
3) Benghazi, her book sales, all her baggage will take second tier to this position even if the media had enough integrity to question or investigate like real journalists.
It’s been obvious for a few months that Hillary’s political director has decided to run against Obama.
It is becoming obvious that they plan to run as the conservative alternative to Jeb Bush.
And you know what? If she runs a strong anti-illegal campaign and if the GOP candidate is a squish, she will win. George Corley Wallace, after being defeated for governor running as a liberal, famously declared “I will never be out-n****rd again”. Where the people will be in 2016, that’s where Team Clinton plans to be.
And unlike the Stupid Party, they may be able to pull it off.
What’s next: She endorses Joe Arpaio?
I’m torn between agreeing with her & also rolling my eyes - if a republican had said this first she probably would have been the first to say how heartless they were
This must be related to some kind of channeling from Eleanor Roosevelt...or maybe Teddy?
Misleading headline. Here is what she said:
Well, they should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are, Clinton admitted. There are concerns about whether all of them should be sent back, but I think all of them who can be should be reunited with their families.
“She must have seen some polling results...”
Just like in "Phantom Menace", Senator Palpatine orchestrated a war to consolidate his own power, the Regime has engineered this illegal immigrant children issue.
If she sticks with this, she will be the next president. Jeb can go find a job somewhere, because his love of illegals would sink his candidacy if he would run against her.
She's got some qualifications on who should be sent back -- it's far from a blanket statement.
Nonetheless, her position suggests she's reading the polls and following their winds.
The solution that I'd like to hear coming from a Republican source, however, would be to send them back to their country of origin upon arrival -- excepting only those in need of medical treatment. And, rather than spending money on holding areas in the USA, that money should be spent in the nations of origin -- with that nation responsible for returning them to their parents.
Well, her husband did send back Elian Gonzalez.
As you noticed, nowhere did she say we must return the children. That was the author putting lipstick on her to make her look acceptable to a majority of Americans.
She did say, We need to do more to provide border security in southern Mexico
That suggests she believes the U.S. has the leverage to persuade Mexico to not facilitate Os orchestrated, nefarious population redistribution.
The House could proceed along that line today, if it had the guts.
She also undermined the liberal mantra, perhaps unintentionally, by confirming the children are indeed - illegal immigrants,
We have to send a clear message: Just because your child gets across the border, that doesnt mean the child gets to stay,..So we dont want to send a message that is contrary to our laws
Step One in the Clintons getting even with the Obamas for painting Bill as a racist in the 2008 campaign . . . believe me there will more to come. This is about making the Democratic Party come to grips with the disaster they are facing this November.
Sounds like Shadow President Sarah Palin got Hillary's mind right!
Of course, since Sarah is not a candidate, you're correct. But she's a leader, without a doubt.

Sarah fought like a girl, and won Hillary! over!
There's another angle.
If a Republican would have spoken first, he would have 'locked out' Hillary. She would have been stuck with either silence, or pleading for amnesty.
This way she gets two things, she gets amnesty, because that's what's going on, and she gets to claim she was against it.
Lilly livered R's are just standing on the sidelines.
Sarah Palin said it first, on June 13.
Palin wrote: "The primary expenditure we need to supply in this humanitarian crisis is jet fuel to fly these children back home to their parents."
Of course, Sarah Palin is not a candidate, and the GOPe hates her.
“...all of them who can be should be reunited with their families.”
This means “Bring in their families to take care of them.” (and vote for me)
