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 OReilly, 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 theres 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 Im not (going to target them). Im 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.

Oh, how special....she’s NOT GOING TO FOLLOW THE LAWS OF THE LAND!
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.
McCain is the lib. :)
“Immigration policy is broken”....but she will not fix it!
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.
If the Senatorial record means anything, these three treacherous Senators have little to differentiate themselves when it comes to defending our borders and stopping the ILLEGAL invasions of millions upon millions.
Dang............is it too late for a serious third party contender
“I want you to elect me to a job I have no intention of doing”
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.
What a revolting election this could be. I’m afraid youre right.
As I heard on Full Metal Jacket: “it’s going to be one big s**t sandwich, and were all going to have to take a bite.”
Well, that makes three candidates that won’t lift a finger to get rid of illegals. Bush will look like Ike in comparison.
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.
Awwww, she wants da wittle illegal immigrants to feel safe. That’s so cute.
“She said she wants illegal immigrants to feel safe reporting crimes”
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)?
Is this suppose to be surprising? I hate to think of will happen to America if Billary or nObama win.
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.
Not at all. You should see the pork those two bring home.
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.
