Hillary Clinton Pledges to ‘Fight for Comprehensive Immigration Reform’, Expand Executive Amnesty

“I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship for you and for your families across our country,” she said. “I will fight to stop partisan attacks on the executive actions that would put Dreamers, including those with us today, at risk of deportation. And if Congress continues to refuse to act, as president I would do everything possible under the law to go even further. There are more people, like many parents of Dreamers, and others, with deep ties and contributions to our communities, who deserve a chance to stay, and I will fight for them.”…

 

Clinton continued, defending the president’s executive amnesties and vowing to expand them if she were to become president.

 

“I want to do everything we can to defend the president’s executive orders because I think they were certainly within his authority, constitutionally, legally, they were based on precedent that I certainly believe is adequate. And then still try to go further and deal with some of these other issues, like the re-unification of families that were here and that have been split up.”

 

“I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants,” Clinton told WABC Radio’s John Gambling. Then, a few moments later, the Democratic Party presidential frontrunner added, “We might have to move towards an ID system even for citizens.”

 

As Byron York pointed out, a number of words were missing from Clinton’s discussion of immigration. She did not say “border,” for example, or “visa” or “E-Verify” or “workplace.” The notion of enforcing the nation’s immigration laws as they currently exist was not on the table

Clinton said she would support a national ID card as part of an overall effort to improve the U.S.’s national security.

Former Senator Hillary Clinton has been in the public eye since her husband was elected to the White House, she was elected to the Senate, she ran against President Obama for the Democratic nomination in 2008, and since she was President Obama’s first Secretary of State.  During this time, Clinton has not made a public comment about the E-Verify system.  We believe Mrs. Clinton has had more than enough chance to speak her mind on the subject and make a positive contribution.

We have not been able to locate any comments made by Sen. Sanders regarding the E-Verify system.  However, he did vote for the Gang of Eight’s 2013 amnesty legislation.  This legislation, * while helpful in that it mandated use of the E-Verify system, did not require 100% of employers to use it, had no enforcement mechanism, and did not contain triggers.  In addition, Sanders made no effort to improve the legislation’s E-Verify provisions.

 

Prevent illegal border entries & surges

Sanders has consistently voted against border security measures, including several amendments to the Gang of Eight amnesty that would have ensured the building of the border fence.
