Flashback: Hillary Clinton admitted the truth about illegal immigrant children in 2014

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Failed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton is one of many liberals who have been harshly critical of the Donald Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” border policy, which has resulted in families being temporarily separated while cases are processed — but just four years ago, she expressed a similarly tough stance on the need to strictly enforce immigration laws.

In a 2014 interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Clinton stated that illegal immigrant children shouldn’t be granted a free pass to cross the border — nor should they serve as one for adults — and should be deported to their home countries as soon as it is safe to do so.

We hear you loud and clear

“We have to send a clear message,” Clinton said in 2014. “Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay.”

And when if they should be “sent back,” Clinton replied: “First of all, we have to provide the best emergency care we can provide. We have children 5- or 6-years-old who have come up from Central America.”

“We need to do more to provide border security in southern Mexico,” she continued.

Take a look for yourself:

Send them back

Likely shocked at Clinton’s admission, Amanpour asked her to clarify: “So you’re saying they should be sent back now?”

“Well, they should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are, because there are concerns about whether all of them can be sent back, but I think all of them who can be should be reunited with their families,” Clinton replied.

Presumably, Clinton meant that children should be “reunited with their families” back in their home countries, since they didn’t enter the U.S. in a legal fashion.

Clinton’s remarks came during the height of the surge of unaccompanied minors at the southern border during the Barack Obama years, and represented a tough, yet common sense approach to handling the flood of illegal immigrant children into the country.

She later shifted her outlook on that issue to the left, ahead of the 2016 election to placate the progressive base of the Democrat Party.

Though Clinton was talking about unaccompanied minors, her words ring true for the many children separated from the parents at the border as well — and as she now calls for all illegal immigrants to be granted a free pass to cross an open and unguarded border, her remarks just four years ago won’t be soon forgotten.

  1. Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

  2. I should say also believe that mesothelioma is a exceptional form of cancers that is often found in people previously exposed to asbestos. Cancerous cellular material form within the mesothelium, which is a protective lining that covers the vast majority of body’s areas. These cells ordinarily form inside lining on the lungs, tummy, or the sac which actually encircles one’s heart. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  3. I have been surfing online more than three hours nowadays, but I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It¡¦s pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
