Skip to comments.'Send them back': Hillary says wave of illegal children should be 'reunited with their families'
Posted on 06/18/2014 6:07:56 AM PDT by Tennessee Nana
Hillary Clinton stunned a CNN audience on Tuesday by saying that the US should deport thousands of unaccompanied minors who have flooded the American border
'They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are,' she said
'Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn't mean the child gets to stay,' she warned parents south of the border
A wave of children, mostly from Central America, has streamed across the US-Mexico border in recent months Border patrol authorities process them and then release them to the Department of Health and Human Services HHS says it reunites 85 per cent of them with family members in the US, but those adults' own immigration status is a question mark

Girlfriend is sounding more Conservative than Willard
Yes, she would be Severely Conservative!
say wahhhhhhh? This issue must resonate with the lo-info voters when this craven opportunist (Hillary) picks it up!!
Everything this idiot says is poll tested!
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
Or, in this case, even a blind witch can cast a spell.
It is a trick! lol
Give her a couple minutes....
Why should the U.S. even attempt to reunite them with their families? Wouldn’t it be much easier for the governments of their home countries to determine where they belong?
>>>Girlfriend is sounding more Conservative than Willard
That is not as it sounds, but true. :)
As much as I despise her, she nailed it with that answer and used the perfect language. “Reunited with their families” is the perfect humanitarian sounding way to put it, and conveniently enough is honest.
Time to cut off US aid to these corrupt, do-nothing governments. US aid should be suspended until the countries tell us where the money is going......and demand they put out appropriate messaging to counter the ads said to be fueling the horrendous surge at the border from Central America.
NOTE WELL: US Aid figures do not include military aid and aid from other US agencies: El Salvador: $280.4M Honduras: $680M Dominican Republic: $223.7M Mexico: $958.2M Guatemala: $391.8M
This report shows US aid $s for the past few years (see page 9 (US Assistance) and pages 25-30 show various other agencies providing aid (DOD, etc.) (needs more research)
We could also send the countries a bill for processing, housing, feeding and providing healthcare and daycare for each of the illegals citizens that they facilitate into the US.
Most Americans are fed-up---and want these types sent back from whence they came....but the buzz is Central American govts are refusing to take them back.
This is what Bill Clinton did when the Cubans tried to come over.
1. Used the coast guard to escort them and point them back to Cuba
2. Went to Congress and they have him the power to empower the state governors, that in case of a mass migration they can "authorize every sheriff, every police department in AZ and TX, to utilize their state police, take custody of these individuals, give them short term assistance, and start loading up their national guard planes and fly them back home...
....none of this turning them loose crap...
....word will circulate within 24 hours...."there ain't no free lunch."
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.
Yes it is a trick. Get everyone to agree that they should be reunited... Then “discover” that is too hard or impractical and well, the only humane thing to do would be to invite their parents to immigrate no questions asked to find their kids. Not buying it Hillary.
They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are..."
A very,very clever move on the part of the Former Twelfth Lady.She gets to sound tough on illegals to appeal to the majority of the country and she gives a wink and a nod to the Rat Party radicals (meaning its mainstream) because they know that such a determinations *will* not,and probably *cannot*,be made.
Good cop, bad cop. She’s running for sure.
“’They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are,’ she said.”
Did someone tell Shillary about the Cantor debacle, she looked at her plummeting poll numbers, and then she decided to pivot ala William Jefferson Clinton?
Clinton triangulation strategy she learned from Bill.. or taught Bill. She carves out a 3rd way but uses liberal rationale - reunite them with their families. She wants the whole family to come over not just the kids.
poll tested... of course
Find a video of Hillary speaking to Brit and Greta on FOXNEWS about 4.30 PM yesterday..
She looked good her hair was neat and cute her clothes were good good color..she sounded good, confident, knowledgeable ..except for that stupid cackle..
She was dressed for the first presidential debate...
I laughed to myself at how right leaning she was in her answers etc
Remember she was a Republican back when the Romney’s were Democrats..
She knows what to say to Conservatives...Willard doesn’t..
I think her campaign has got off with a bang..
Hopefully she will be the Democrat candidate..
other than Willard just about any GOP candidate will be able to beat her in Nov 2016..
Meanwhile she is taking the country to the right..
Which will mess up Obama’s plans for the next 2 1/2 years..
Oh yes he may continue in his war on the US...
but not without some fights with the Democrats in congress who will want to get behind Hillary and what she has to say on any issue...
the Clintons are still too important and strong politically for any Democrat to try to buck her now...
Watch for Obama back tracking on a few things in the next few weeks...
Honest but probably devious... because in the end, the direction of reunition (is that a word!?) is from South to North... and NOT as she tries to imply, from North to South.
It’s frightening when I agree with sHrillary....
She doesn’t dare NOT say that! She is grasping at anything to offset her flubs and lies. She can lie sincerely, and many will buy it, but she wants the invasion to continue, for all the reasons it was started.
I truly believe that——— as most here do.
I eagerly await Luis Guitterez’ comments on Hillary’s thoughts..
“as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are”
Hillary is trying to fool the unwary and establish her cred as a tough pragmatist. By definition, abandoned children have no responsible adults in their families. Nor do children sent alone on 3000 mile journeys to undefined destinations. Her “as soon as” condition can never be met.
1) Determine national origin of the children. If they don’t know or won’t say, assign them one. Assign the care of specific younger children to specific older ones.
2) Notify consulates that their nationals are being returned to their countries of origin. Their nations should be ready to receive and care for their children at ____ airbase starting in three days.
3) Fly them home by the C-5 load.
4) Rinse and repeat as necessary.
In an attempt to blackmail the American people, Obama has chosen to make this into a “humanitarian disaster” and refuses to end it.
What sort of idiot could believe that “amnesty” would work when even unaccompanied children are flooding across the border at will?
well I think we will find shes going to convince Obama to lay off the onslaught against America so she can continue her traction...
she may have had to put up with Obama for the last few years but since she has been the heir to the throne since 2008 in return for letting Obama have it then, she is going to rule from now on..
Obama better not mess up Hillary’s campaign by doing anything stupid...
Michelle will need Hillary to help her win the senate seat from fellow Democrat Mark Kirk in 2016..
>>>Reunited with their families
Honest but probably devious... because in the end, the direction of reunition (is that a word!?) is from South to North... and NOT as she tries to imply, from North to South.<<<
Unfortunately, I am afraid that is how it will end up, but Hilary did make it clear that she meant for the children to go South. I don’t believe her for a second, but her statement, on the face, was good policy and great politics.
When Bill was Prez he was tough on the border...
Hillary is being guided by Bill..
they see the writing on the wall...
can you imagine what this country is going to be like next year if this tidal wave of illegal aliens keeps on going ??
the crimes, rapes, murders, robberies against American citizens..
and the taxes to pay for the upkeep of illegal aliens ???
Hillary and Bill have their fingers constantly in the air...
people will remember next year and 2016 what Hillary said today..
There really is no way to get rid of EMails...
Reminds me of the human child waves of the Iran-Iraq war... waves of poor and scared and confused Iranian kids sent to the front lines. Difference here is that instead of being shot, they are being fed and getting shelter, medical attention, formula prepared and diapers changed. And, most relevant, the ‘Regime is facilitating all this to further their agenda.
Wow. A Democrat said this. Whodathunkit?
I wonder if any ‘Pubbies have the guts to come and say this?
“Not our kids. Send them back.”
Maybe she was on drugs.
Willard should have taken such drugs...
The government should pay the “coyotes” to take them back. Where did their “families” get the “thousands of dollars” to give the “coyotes” to bring them here anyway?
"If we take what we know to be the realities that we confront - 12 to 14 million people here - what will we do with them? I hear the voices from the other side of the aisle. I hear the voices on TV and radio. And they are living in some other universe, talking about deporting people, rounding them up.
"I don't agree with that and I don't think it's practical. And therefore what we've got to do is to say, 'Come out of the shadows, we will register everyone, we will check, because if you have committed a crime in this country or the country you came from then you will not be able to stay. You will have to be deported.
"'But the vast majority of the people who are here, we will give you a path to legalization if you meet the following conditions: pay a fine because you entered illegally, be willing to pay back taxes over time, try to learn English - and we have to help you do that because we've cut back on so many of our services - and then you wait in line.'"
Wow. Those poll numbers came back fast, didn’t they?
Meaningless utterings. She will say anything to get elected. Once in office, she will be just as bad as Obama. The MSM will not hold her accountable for any inconsistencies.
meanwhile those same “utterings” will cause the country to go towards the center and away from Obama’s utopia...
remember Hillary cannot be seen to be the third term of Obama..
she has to be the anti-Obama..
and the-friends-of-Bill will be roped in to help her..
I heard a radio interview yesterday (I did not get a name) and the person said Princess Hillary needs to do one of two things: move right which will hurt her chances with her supporters or move left which will limit her chances of winning the presidency. I suppose this is an attempt to move right.
OK, I’m scared. Hillary and I agree on something.
Forget finding their families...send them back to their own governments to find their families.
I’m stunned. I actually agree with the hildabeast
at least she’s consistent (ala Elian gonzales)
Yes, ever since her health care initiative got thrown back in her face. Look back, what has she said about amnesty in the past.
I have the feeling she's been told she's toast so she has nothing to lose by pandering to conservatives. She could be a faux-Reagan if she reaches both parties.
Hillary has definitely been coached in elocution and presentation. Her new image is calm, authoritative and smug. Image is everything these days and unfortunately this new Hillary will resonate with the lo-infos
Doesn’t matter that she has no record of accomplishment. That she has never done a useful thing in her life. That all she has ever done is flap her gums same as Obama before he got elected president
Lo-info idiot voters spend more care on hiring their plumber and electricians and looking at their resume...as in “what plumbing have you done before and for who?”
“’Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay,’ she warned parents south of the border”
Wow - so where are the conservatives on this?
I agree with her, but I’m not sure I believe her.
That wouldn't be hard.
No it wouldn’t..
against Hillary, Willard wouldn’t stand a chance..
should the GOPe be so stupid as to pick him again...
