Clinton's Immigration Record Has Been Riddled With Numerous Flip Flops

- August 6, 2015

Clinton Has Recently Gone Further Left On Immigration “Than President Obama To Shield Some Illegal Immigrants From Deportation.” “In recent weeks, Clinton has called for reforming the nation's criminal justice system to reduce the number of people in prison. The policies she backed tacitly repudiated some of the tough-on-crime moves of her husband's administration which helped boost incarceration rates. She has advocated an immigration policy that would go further than President Obama to shield some illegal immigrants from deportation.” (David Lauter, “Clinton Has Shifted Left, But So Have Americans,” Los Angeles Times, 5/22/15)

  • Hillary Clinton In 2003: “I Am, You  Know, Adamantly Against Illegal Immigrants.” “We’ve got to do several things and I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants. I made this exception basically on humanitarian grounds because of the individual story but certainly we’ve got to do more at our borders. And people have to stop employing illegal immigrants. Come up to Westchester, go to Suffolk and Nassau counties, stand in the street corners in Brooklyn or the Bronx – you’re going to see loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work and construction work and domestic work.” (Hillary Clinton, John Gambling Radio Show, February 2003)

In April 2015, Clinton Stated That She Supported Giving Driver’s Licenses To Illegal Immigrants. “In her first week as a presidential candidate, Mrs. Clinton twice came out with pro-immigration stances. First, a spokesman issued a clear statement saying she supports state efforts to give driver’s licenses to people in the U.S. illegally, a switch from her muddled position in 2008. And on Friday, she tweeted her support for Mr. Obama’s executive action on immigration, which is being challenged in federal court. On Friday, an appeals court heard arguments.” (Laura Meckler, “Immigration Debate Very Much Alive On Campaign Trail,” The Wall Street Journal, 4/18/15)

  • In 2008, Clinton Opposed Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants. “As a presidential candidate in 2008, she opposed gay marriage, equivocated on granting driver's licenses to people who were living in the U.S. illegally and endured heavy criticism from rival Barack Obama over her stance on campaign finance.” (Lisa Lerer, “Clinton Patches Relations With Liberals At Campaign’s Outset,” The Associated Press, 4/19/15)

In July, Clinton Stated That The City Should Have Listened To The Department Of Homeland Security’s Request To Deport This Criminal. CLINTON: “Well, what should be done is any city should listen to the Department of Homeland Security, which as I understand it urged them to deport this man again after he got out of prison another time. Here's a case where we've deported, we've deported, we've deported, he ends back up in our country. And I think the city made a mistake. The city made a mistake not to deport someone that the federal government strongly felt should be deported.” (CNN’s “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer,” 7/7/15)

  • In 2007, Clinton Advocated For Local Law Enforcement To Ignore Federal Agencies Requests. RUSSERT: “But you would allow the sanctuary cities to disobey the federal law?” CLINTON: “Well, I don't think there is any choice. The ICE groups go in and raid individuals, but if you're a local police chief and you're trying to solve a crime that you know people from the immigrant community have information about, they may not talk to you if they think you're also going to be enforcing the immigration laws. Local law enforcement has a different job than federal immigration enforcement. The problem is the federal government has totally abdicated its responsibility.” (Hillary Clinton, 2007 Democratic Presidential Candidates Debate at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, 9/26/07)
