Democratic front-runner practically baits GOP contenders into immigration battle
In her first Nevada campaign event on Tuesday afternoon, the Democratic front-runner accused the entire GOP field of seeking to relegate immigrants to "second-class status."
She promised to go further than President Barack Obama, whose unilateral moves to keep more undocumented immigrants in the United States have infuriated conservatives.Executive orders to try and bypass congress. Just like Obama and his phone and pen.
For the first time, Clinton laid out reform proposals. Among them: Allow the parents of "Dreamers," or undocumented immigrants brought into the country as children, to stay in the country just like their children can under Obama's 2012 executive action. The undocumented parents of children who are already U.S. citizens gained that right under Obama's follow-up 2014 action. She also said reunifying splintered families should be a core goal of immigration policy.
If Congress won't act, she pledged "as President I would do everything possible under the law to go even further" than Obama has gone already to expand undocumented immigrants' rights.
Clinton said she wants to see a streamlined process for undocumented immigrants to make their case to avoid deportation.Because of misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, this is the only country in the world to grant citizenship to the children of illegals. Go to any other country and have a kid and see what it gets you. Children born to service members over seas are not citizens of the country they are born in, they are citizens of the United States.
