After Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced President Trump’s decision to cancel Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), critics have called him cruel, inhumane, deplorable, etc. However, reports from Fox News prove that the Democrats’ beloved Hillary Clinton feels the same way.
“Sending A Clear Message..”
During a June 2014 CNN interview, Hillary Clinton made the following remarks about illegal immigrant children in America:
“We have to send a clear message, just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay. So, we don’t want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey. They should be sent back.”
How very interesting! At the time, Clinton was referring to the children of illegal aliens from Central America; however, the same concept applies. She very clearly stated: “We don’t want to send a message that is contrary to our laws.”
DACA is inherently contrary to U.S. law and breaches the Constitution. The United States is a nation of law and order. If non-Americans want to become American citizens, they must follow our laws.
Why Did Clinton Change Her Tune?
Excerpts from Clinton’s 2014 interview are a far cry from her current declarations censuring the President for ending DACA. It is amazing how often politicians change their tune. Perhaps Clinton’s political 180 degree turn has to do with her admission to having both a “public and private position.”
Unfortunately, Clinton is one of many politicians to change tunes in relative short periods of time. Such occurrences merely give credence to the belief that political figures in the limelight are merely puppets being controlled by powerful people behind the scenes.
Response From Clinton or Other Democrats
So far, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats who love her so much have yet to release statements about the contrast between her 2014 assertions and current DACA statements. Instead of the aforementioned ‘public position and private position,’ perhaps Clinton would do well to adopt one position. Authenticity and honesty are very rare traits in the political arena.
DACA is dead. 2014 was one of the rare instances where truth actually came from Hillary Clinton’s mouth. Illegal immigrants, even young ones, have no rights to be in America. They can leave with their parents and return here legally. However criminal aliens have justified their actions in their minds is meaningless. American kids have dreams too, as do legal immigrants. It is high time for the U.S. to prioritize and accommodate lawful people over criminals.
