Hillary pulls a Kerry on illegal immigration

She actually was against illegal immigration...before she was for it.

She accuses the GOP of trying to create a police state over illegal immigration. Excerpt:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a potential White House candidate in 2008, said Wednesday some Republicans are trying to create a "police state" to round up illegal immigrants.

Clinton, D-N.Y., spoke out on the U.S. immigration policy after largely staying away from an issue that has roiled Congress in recent months and spurred a number of conflicting proposals.

Speaking at a rally of Irish immigrants, Clinton criticized a bill the House passed in December that would impose harsher penalties for undocumented workers.

"Don't turn your backs on what made this country great," she said, calling the measure "a rebuke to what America stands for."
Yeah, we all know how the Irish are sneaking over here illegally, don't we? For those of you on the left, the prior sentence was sarcasm.

So if I understand Her Highness correctly, illegal immigration (i.e. breaking the law) has "made this country great" and is what America "stands for"? I suppose if anyone knows about breaking the law and its connection to perceived greatness, it would be the Clintons, wouldn't it? After all, the message she's sending to legal (i.e. law-abiding) aliens is the same message her hubby and she sent to America during their eight-year co-presidency: "Rules are for suckers!"

This newly discovered sentiment seems to be a 180-degree turn (or, some might even call it a "flip-flop") from her prior rhetoric whereby she pretended to give a damn about illegal immigration. Here's guessing that since her initial stance, her handlers have informed the brightest woman in the world (who can't seem to recall anything, oddly enough) that she needs to know what side of the bread her butter is other words, she needs to learn the fine art of "Hispandering." Sure, she was speaking to Irish folks, but if you believe her message was not intended for illegal Latinos in America, I've got some swmapland in Florida to sell you.

Democrats want illegal aliens here for votes. Republicans want them here for votes and for cheap labor for their business constituents. Americans are growing increasingly tired of it, and at some point, anti-illegals politicians like Tom Tancredo will have to be listened to, or the pro-illegal politicians may find themselves unemployed and thus competing for the same jobs that illegal aliens are vying for. Maybe then these spineless politicians can convince the business constituents they coddled for years to give them a job!
