This morning Hillary Clinton promised to go even more overboard on illegal invasion than has Obama:
It might be the early days of the Democratic primary, but Hillary Clinton on Tuesday appeared to move straight to the general election, challenging the Republicans to attack her on immigration by moving beyond President Barack Obama on the issue.
“This is where I differ from everyone on the Republican side,” Clinton said, speaking at a roundtable at Rancho High School in Las Vegas, surrounded by a group of Dreamers. “Make no mistake, today not a single Republican candidate, announced or potential, is clearly and consistently supporting a path to citizenship. Not one. When they talk about legal status, that is code for second-class status.”
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio have said they support “earned legal status,” which leaves the door open to a status that does not offer full citizenship rights.
Clinton said she would go even further than the president has through executive action, by allowing more immigrants to get legal protection and work permits.
“Why would she do this?” you might ask. It’s simple. Hillary realizes that she can’t win without the illegal vote, but there’s more to this than is apparent at first. Mexico already owns Bill Clinton. They bought him. Now it’s time for the payback.
At least 10 top Mexican business groups and corporations, both public and private, paid millions of dollars for Bill Clinton to speak at their events between 2002 and 2012, according to a review of the family’s federal financial disclosures published by The Washington Post in June.
Over more than a decade, Clinton delivered 14 speeches to 11 different Mexican sponsors. He was paid $3.2 million. One of his first paid appearances in Mexico was in October 2003 when the 42nd President was invited by Mexico’s Central Bank. His price: $150,000.
As the flak his reputation had taken around the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal wound down, the demand for the charismatic former President in the global high-end speech circuit doubled — and so did his fees. In April 2012, while his wife Hillary Clinton was still in charge of the Obama Administration’s diplomacy, Clinton gave the keynote speech at Mexico’s National Association of Bankers’ annual convention in Acapulco. His fee: $340,000.
Yet his most lucrative trip to Mexico was in November of 2008, soon after the Democrats recovered the White House. On that date, the Post’s review shows, Clinton addressed separately three groups: Casa de Bolsa Value Group, Mexican Friends of Zaka and Mexico’s National Tourism Business Council. His total pay: $600,000.
Two years later, in October 2010, Clinton was invited by Mexico Business Summit, an influential businessmen’s club led by a well-connected PRI politician, to deliver the keynote speech “Embracing Our Common Humanity,” at their annual convention in Toluca, the capital of the state of Mexico. The Post’s records show that Clinton actually gave two presentations the same day to the same group for which he charged a total of $400,000.
Mexico is eager to rid itself of unskilled illiterates and democrats are desperate for them. Mexico made a deal that facilitates the passage of illegals to the US.
It always interests me how there’s so much money in Mexico and other foreign countries for Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation but not for the poor in those countries. The answer is obvious- it’s about buying access. There are clear examples in which changes in policy have come about subsequent to donations and paid speeches.
Don’t you wonder why the Clinton Foundation doesn’t help Baltimore? Probably because those votes are already locked up. It’s the triumph of hope over reality all over again.
It is in illegal immigration that you can see the heart of liberalism at work. Illegals broke into this country. It’s called illegal immigration for a reason. Illegals created the problem. Instead of holding them accountable for their wrongdoing liberals make their problem OUR problem and for cheap political favors demand WE pay for their largesse. It is this philosophy- this failure to hold accountable those who do wrong- this is so corrosive tp the fabric of this nation.
My office manager came to this country legally nearly thirty years ago. She had skills. She could speak the language. Still INS demanded she present herself every six months and forced her to sign documents guaranteeing that she would not take social services. Today she is a citizen and never did take those services. She represents that kind of immigrant for whom democrats have no use.
Legal. Self-supportive. Literate.
When it comes to immigrants, that’s anathematic to liberals.
NOTE: There’s something everyone needs to remember. Whatever Bill “earns”, Hillary owns half of it. There is no “his money” and “her money.” Whatever he does for a buck, she’s benefiting equally.
