Does Hillary Clinton Represent Americans or Illegal Aliens?

On May 17 2007, the Clinton Campaign released the following position statement on "Immigration Reform". Read it so you have it in-context; my comments follow:

Statement of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Washington, DC - "This afternoon, a bipartisan group of Senators, who have been working closely in conjunction with the Administration, announced that they had reached an agreement on a comprehensive approach for reforming our broken immigration system.
As I have long maintained, comprehensive immigration reform must have as essential ingredients a strengthening of our borders, greater cross-cooperation with our neighbors, strict but fair enforcement of our laws, federal assistance to our state and local governments, strict penalties for those who exploit undocumented workers, and a path to earned legal status for those who are here, working hard, paying taxes, respecting the law, and willing to meet a high bar. In particular, we must also ensure that any bill protects the sanctity of families and does not lead to the creation of a new underclass in our country.
I will scrutinize carefully the proposed compromise to see if it honors our nation's principles and proud immigrant heritage while also respecting the rule of law."

Let me highlight some of the key language in this statement.

  • "strict but fair enforcement of our laws",
  • "strict penalties for those who exploit undocumented workers",
  • "a path to earned legal status for those who are here, working hard, paying taxes, respecting the law, and willing to meet a high bar."

The rest is just filler designed to make her sound tough on illegal immigration and "fair" on illegal immigration at the same time. I included the entire statement so no Hillary-lover could accuse me of taking her out of context.

STATEMENT #1: "strict but fair enforcement of our laws". The law says you must enter this country legally or you will be deported. What's unfair about that?

We have, and have always had, immigration quotas for a reason. Quotas ensure America and it's social systems are not overwhelmed. They ensure the new immigrants can be assimilated into American society, not balkanize America. Quotas ensure that criminals and those with communicable diseases are not admitted into the country. What's unfair about that?

How can we be strict but lax at the same time? How about saying "strict enforcement of our laws, period, Hillary? Shouldn't we enforce all our laws strictly? Congress establishes the laws on immigration: are you saying Congress, current and past, has been unfair? Then change the laws you created, but if you don't strictly enforce any law, it teaches disrespect for the law.

STATEMENT #2: "strict penalties for those who exploit undocumented workers". How about strict penalties for those who violated our immigration laws and are in this country illegally? Your nemesis, Big Business and Capitalism, wouldn't have anyone to exploit if we strictly enforced our immigration laws. I will concede the point to Hillary that if there wasn't a demand for illegal aliens, then they wouldn't come here in the numbers they currently do. I'm not opposed to strict penalties for businesses employing illegal aliens, but I notice you left out the word "fair".

Just yesterday, US District Judge Charles Breyer issued a preliminary injunction that stops Homeland Security from using mis-matched social security numbers to ferret out companies that are hiring illegal aliens. Homeland Security had already identified 8 million workers at 140,000 companies with SSAN mismatches. A number of these are no doubt clerical errors by the employee, the employer or the Social Security Administration, but the affected companies had 90 days to clear them up once notified. The vast remainder are illegal aliens who should be arrested and deported. And yes, Hillary, the employers who knowingly hired them should be penalized. "Knowingly" is the key. Every time Homeland Security enacts a plan to identify illegals, liberal Judges (Breyer is from San Francisco) strike them down. And like your complete statement above, our Senators and Congressmen generally talk out of both sides of their mouth, not wanting alienate the (hopefully legal) Hispanic voters when it comes to immigration.

STATEMENT #3: "a path to earned legal status for those who are here, working hard, paying taxes, respecting the law, and willing to meet a high bar." is the MOST INFURIATING of all and contradicts everything you've said concerning enforcing the law.

I'll analyse this statement from the end to the front. "willing to meet a high bar"......I have absolutely no idea what that means but it sure sounds tough! How about the first bar being: entering this country legally in the first place.

"respecting the law"....they BROKE the law to enter this country ILLEGALLY! By this fact alone, they are unqualified for your "earned legal status". And living in Texas which is one of the battleground states under invasion from Mexico, there are stories every day about people who are involved in auto accidents with illegals who don't even have Driver's Licenses, let alone insurance. So who ends up paying? LAW ABIDING Americans with Insurance through higher and higher insurance premiums to cover these claims. Illegal aliens don't respect the law: why should they when we don't enforce it? Why aren't the illegal aliens involved in these accidents arrested and deported? They are in this country ILLEGALLY and their very presence here is a violation of the law. Why don't we enforce our own laws?

"working hard" and "paying taxes": "Working hard is a generalization as well as a stereotype. Illegal Aliens also steal to survive. In fact, the Mexican version of the Mafia has grown to enormous proportions here in the US. Even the Arian Nation kowtows to them in prison.

As to "paying taxes", not all illegal aliens work for BIG BUSINESS with phony social security cards. Many work for small companies or individuals who pay them in cash. No tax money there.

We also have a real education crisis here in Texas because the Supreme Court in 1977 ruled that a Texas law prohibiting illegal aliens from receiving a free public-paid education was unconstitutional. Our schools are overburdened as are our tax payers, education is suffering because of "bilingualism". English speaking children are held back until the Spanish only can catch up. And since the Hispanic illegal alien parents speak no or poor English, their children get no chance to practice English at home.

There is also a huge cash-based underground economy among illegal aliens which is untaxed and the price of free medical care and other social services is bankrupting the country. Add to that the $60 BILLION Hispanics don't spend on products and services in the US but wire back to Mexico and it's no wonder the Mexican Government gives out handbooks on how to sneak into the US.

In Irving, Texas, the Mexican Consulate had the AUDACITY to PUBLICLY warn illegal aliens to stay away from Irving because Irving Police are actually participating in a program which allows them to question criminals as to their legal status and turn them over to ICE if they're here illegally.

You talk about "assistance to State and Local Governments" in your about allowing them to enforce the law by adopting legislation even activist Judges can't get around? How about worrying more about AMERICANS OF ALL RACES and THEIR rights MORE than those of ILLEGAL, INVADING Aliens?

Here's some suggested reading for you, Hillary: The Series: The Immigration Crisis in America Today. It's a series of posts with such interesting titles as "How to Stop Illegal Immigration for Dummies" and "Immigrant Hispanics and Compassionate Racism in America".

You're not going to able to walk the fence on this issue against a conservative Republican opponent, Hillary. You've got the polling data that shows where the American voters (the legal ones, at least) stand on this issue and it's not for allowing illegals (not undocumented...please stop using that word; but illegal aliens) "earning" legal status after breaking our laws in the first place. Watch out: your globalism is showing!

you are an ignorant and insignificant man for believing all the crap that you write in your stupid articles. No, there's not only " a few" good hispanic students and No America has not become a dumping ground. I happen to live in Texas and I have all AP classes all in which there's more than a few good hispanis students. Explain to me in your next article how in the world it makes sense that we, "mexicans" or "hipanics" should abandon our culture and languague and indulge in the american culture when the american culture is all about diversity and embracing all the different backgrounds we encounter. I suggest you stop writing all your hateful entries and start focusinig more on you and getting a life!

I don't blame you for your ignorance except in the first sentence of your comment. Tasteless and the sign of a weak argument. America is NOT all about diversity and embracing all the different backgrounds we encounter. I know that's what is taught in the schools now so I don't blame you....the diversity movement started in the late 1960's/early 1970's by liberal globalist college students who later, being unemployable for nothing else, became teachers and perpetuated the myth until this generation actually believes it.

American was founded on the "Melting Pot Theory": that people from all cultures and backgrounds come to America and add their cultural mores to the Greater American Culture. There was and is a unique American culture. What keeps it fresh and growing are the contributions our legal immigrants make. We were never intended to be a Balkanized society of bi-lingual/multi-lingual enclaves looking at each other with distrust. And we never were: until we were simply overwhelmed by the tens of millions of illegal Latino immigrants who came to America for opportunities (and hand-outs), but NOT to become AMERICANS. They are Mexicans LIVING in America. Big difference. Who my heart goes out to are the LEGAL Latino immigrants, who learned English, followed the law, and became AMERICAN citizens. They suffer guilt by association which is unfair.

I'll leave you with these final words that Teddy Roosevelt (he was one of our Presidents) made in a speech in 1907:
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming, in every facet, an American, and nothing but an American ...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." -- Theodore Roosevelt, 1907

Oh, another thing to "anonymous". The Hispanic AP students, unless they and their parents are here legally, are STEALING an education that their parents are not paying for: the American Taxpayer is.

If you don't want to abandon your language, culture and heritage, stay in Mexico and be a productive citizen there.

There's nothing "hateful" about simply stating the truth. Illegal Aliens are breaking our laws just by being here, are stealing education, health services, and more....and have, as apparently most illegal Hispanic aliens seem to think, no "RIGHT" to be here. I am a HUGE supporter if LEGAL immigration into this country. It's the American Way! But if you're here ILLEGALLY, then you are breaking our laws and stealing our taxpayer provided services. If you love Mexico so much, GO HOME.
