The media has been on the lookout for every single inconsistency that the Republican and Democratic primaries are stating. This time, the focus will be on Hillary Clinton.
A user pointed it out saying Clinton is really “crooked” because she has been bashing Donald Trump for his claims on “the wall,” while she has been pro deportation of illegal immigrants years ago.
In an archived clip, Hillary Clinton was captured saying she hopes the government could implement a stricter measure on immigration. This was the time when she was going against Barack Obama.
According to Weekly Standard, Hillary Clinton also confirmed her stance on the illegal Mexican immigrants during a town hall Q&A last year. Here’s what she said.
“Well look. I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.”
Hillary Clinton noted that the current regulations on illegal immigrants does not allow the country to open more opportunities for U.S. citizens. She said that employers should be penalized for hiring illegal Mexican 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.”
Hillary Clinton added that everyone can go to Westchester, Suffolk and even Nasau and just stand by the streets there to see that there are “loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work and construction work and domestic work.”
According to Townhall, this is another inconsistency on Clinton’s stance since she voted for the Dorgan Amendment, which sets a provision program for guest workers back in 2007. Townhall concluded that Hillary Clinton did a “180 flip-flop” on her case on immigration.
Hillary Clinton might be a lot more politically polished when she was providing her statements on immigration compared to Donald Trump, but they initially had the same goals in mind. Whether Clinton’s flip-flop case on immigration is just to win the voters, this might be reflective of what Barack Obama said of the democrat back in 2008, “Hillary Clinton will say anything to get elected.”
More Inconsistencies… What’s Her True Voice?
Hillary Clinton’s major opinions on relevant societal matters have been collected by a YouTube user who showed the massive differences of her statements.
When it comes to incarceration, back in 1996, Hillary Clinton said the U.S. should be wary of these “super predators” who have “no conscience, no empathy.” Because of that, these people (or criminals) must be caged so “they could never get out again.” That time, the Crime Bill has just passed and it imposed a lot of police men on the streets.
Meanwhile, during the debate last year hosted by CNN, Hillary Clinton said the opposite.
“We cannot keep imprisoning more people than anybody else in the world.”
There’s also her lengthy, but vague statement on refugees. Back in 2014, she was asked how she feels about the children refugees who have come to the United States.
Clinton answered saying that it was a terrible event. She routed her response towards the outside countries who do not have “the will” to implement secure police measures. But when the interviewer asked for her statement of confirmation on whether she would allow them to stay, noting that if would be safer for the children to stay in the U.S., she just said the following.
“They should be sent back…we should send a clear message. Just because your child gets across the border doesn’t mean the child gets to stay.”
