NY POST ^ | March 9, 2006 | AP

HILLARY CLINTON Joins immigration debate.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton....charged that some Republicans are trying to create a "police state" to round up illegal immigrants.

Speaking at a rally of Irish immigrants, Clinton blasted a bill passed the House in December that would make unlawful presence in the US - currently a civil offense - a felony.....the House bill "is a rebuke to what America stands for." Clinton called it "an unworkable scheme to try to deport 11 million people, which you have to have a police state to try to do."

She called, instead, for immigration reform "based on strengthening our borders".....Clinton said she supports allowing some undocumented workers to earn citizenship, especially "those who are here, working hard, paying taxes, respecting the law."

The twelve million can even stay AFAIC, but just stop letting more in every day! Then work on getting the criminals out that are already here.

And stop rewarding them with in-state tuition privileges and driver's licenses.

the McCain Kennedy Immigration Bill (S1033), which, among other issues, provides legal status for undocumented people already in the U.S.

A bill from McInsane and The Swimmer? NO THANK YOU!

Did someone mention "police state tactics" in rounding up immigrants?

"God help us if she gets elected President."

If that happens it may be the best thing for conservatives as SHE will overreach and the backlash will result in conservative victories in future elections..too many citizens do not yet see the danger of the left..she will point it out to them in spades.



Sorry...FOUR years of Hillary Clinton is FOUR years too many. FIVE seconds of Hillary Clinton is too much.

"Globalists and free traders among us..who actively work to weaken the Nationalism of our people as they move the means of production to the third world..these actions cannot be stopped by the Armed Forces as in VietNam the politicians make the ultimate decisions that will cause us to fall."

You want jobs to stay in America? Get rid of the freaking Unions that are destroying American business!

I guess it depends on what the "smartest woman in the world" definition of illegal and respecting the law is.
