You would think that if Hillary was going to pander, she could just tell Univision that she keeps a bottle of Cholula in her purse. Instead, she thought “saaaay, let’s start a latino voter drive…with illegals.”
Hillary Clinton’s campaign is launching a new effort to tap into the political power of young, undocumented immigrants, hoping to capitalize on Donald Trump’s promises to make deporting them a top priority of his presidency.
The 730,000 young people brought to the U.S. as children without legal status are prohibited from voting. Known as Dreamers, they’ve proven themselves to be a powerful organizing force in American politics, mounting a high-profile public campaign that pressured President Barack Obama to grant many of them and their parents reprieves from deportation though two executive orders.
Clinton’s national voter registration program, called “Mi Sueño, Tu Voto/My Dream, Your Vote,” is being launched on the four-year anniversary of the 2012 order that temporarily shielded from deportation some young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children and allowed them to work legally.
Wait… Hillary Clinton is openly courting illegal immigrants? In order to buy votes?
Good. Lord. Do you know what we used to call “undocumented immigrants”? Criminals. No, I’m not insinuating that they’re all rapists or drug-lords. Just that came here illegally. Meaning not legally. Meaning it’s against the law. Meaning they’re criminals. Hillary Clinton is openly pandering to gain the votes of criminals.
Now, it’s not that I’m unsympathetic to the motive of these criminals. They really want to get to the USA. We’re an awesome country. It’s only that I have more empathy for the people who’ve already come here legally. Like my mom. Going through the process is difficult, and I don’t believe an entire voting block deserves a free pass and political pandering simply because of a geographical advantage. When immigrants come into our country illegally, which poses both a security threat and financial burden on the tax-paying citizens of the USA, the only response coming from our elected officials should be a simple one.
But I guess that doesn’t buy you elections. To be fair, if you met her campaign manager you can’t be surprised that this is her strategy…
