Rewarding Illegals

The Associated Press reported on a speech that Hillary gave on Wednesday railing against Republican plans to fight illegal immigration.

Speaking "at a rally of Irish immigrants" (although how many illegals are from the Emerald Isle?), she blasted a bill the House passed in December that would impose harsher penalties for undocumented aliens as "a rebuke to what America stands for."

In fact, she claimed that the GOP would "have to have a police state" to enforce their legislation. Sen. Clinton’s criticism of the House’s efforts have revealed her as having the typical liberal, pre-9/11 mindset when it comes to immigration. Over the past year, she has tried to appear more conservative on the issue of illegal immigration, in a classic Clintonian move to try and move to the right of many in the GOP, including President Bush. However, the Minuteman Project, which patrolled the U.S.-Mexico border to stop illegal immigrants, never bought into it, as they endorsed John Spencer’s U.S. Senate candidacy, and now Hillary has stated, in a four-page public letter to constituents outlining her views on immigration, that she supports allowing millions of the illegal immigrants working here in America to "earn citizenship."

In other words, to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
