Hillary’s Tin Ear on Illegal Aliens
By: John Lillpop
During the October 30 Democratic debate, moderator Tim Russert asked Hillary Clinton, “Do you the New York Senator, Hillary Clinton, support the New York Governor’s Plan to give illegal immigrants driver’s licenses?”
The Queen of Mean answered with several flip-flops between “Yes” and “No.”
That shoddy Halloween eve performance has haunted Hillary ever since and has resulted in new life for the campaigns of challengers Barack Obama and John Edwards.
One wonders why “No person is illegal!” was not Hillary’s immediate response in Philadelphia?
That was clearly her tactic while stalking potential victim-voters in a Hispanic neighborhood in Las Vegas on January 10.
“No woman is illegal,” Clinton screeched to cheers, mostly in Spanish, coming from people who apparently forgot that they were consigned to the shadows.
Still, Hillary’s confusion is fairly plausible, when one thinks about.
After all, being surrounded by the likes of Bill Clinton, Norman Hsu, Sandy Burger, and Sidney Blumenthal could distort one’s ability to distinguish between right and wrong, legal and illegal.
However, the issue of illegal versus illegal as pertains to immigration is really quite well defined in federal laws such as the Immigration Reform and Control Act, passed by Congress and signed into law in 1986.
In that law, the term “Illegal alien” is the operative term for those whom are in the United States illegally.
But perhaps the law does not mean all that much to an ambitious woman on a scavenger hunt for votes who also just happens to be a congenital liar?
