Hillary Clinton: “I Will Go As Far As I Can” Beyond Obama to Welcome Illegals to America
Hillary Clinton promised Democrats in Iowa that as president she would “go beyond Obama” in embracing illegal aliens into the country.
The Examiner reported:
Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, pledging to go “beyond President Obama” in embracing illegal immigrants, said that she will use executive powers as president to go around Congress to end deportations.
At Saturday’s Iowa Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, she also called illegals “law abiding.”
During a period of her 25 minute address when she was listing her political promises, she turned to immigration to say that she would go farther than Obama to protect the 12 million illegal immigrants in America, especially families.
“I am going to back and support what President Obama has done to protect Dreamers and their families, to use executive action to prevent deportation,” Clinton said to cheers in the audience of about 6,000.
“If we can not get comprehensive immigration reform as we need, and as we should, with a real path to citizenship that will actually grow our economy then I will go as far as I can, even beyond President Obama, to make sure law abiding, decent, hard working people in this country are not ripped away from their families,” she added.
