Hillary on Immigration at the DNC: No Wall, No Deportation, More Muslim Immigrants, and Path to Citizenship for Illegals

 

VDARE — I said that the amount of immigration patriotism in Trump’s acceptance speech was amazing–Hillary’s is the reverse.

She rejects

  • Trump’s proposed Muslim moratorium, which should have happened 15 years ago.
  • A border wall, which is immensely popular, and which has been approved(then defunded) by Congress.
  • Any deportations of illegals, as required by current law.

Finally, she wants to put the illegals on a path to citizenship–so they can vote Democratic. If it weren’t for that last part, this speech could have been give by a Republican.

Now we are clear-eyed about what our country is up against. But we are not afraid. We will rise to the challenge, just as we always have. We will not build a wall. Instead, we will build an economy where everyone who wants a good paying job can get one.

And we’ll build a path to citizenship for millions of [illegal]immigrants who are already contributing to our economy!

We will not ban a religion. We will work with all Americans and our allies to fight terrorism. There’s a lot of work to do. Too many people haven’t had a pay raise since the crash.

I believe that when we have millions of hardworking [illegal]immigrants contributing to our economy, it would be self-defeating and inhumane to kick them out. Comprehensive immigration reform will grow our economy and keep families together–and it’s the right thing to do.

NPR did a “factchecked” annotated version of the speech, but it never occurred to them to check whether illegals contributed to the economy.
