“Hillary Clinton and 10,000 Dead Mexicans”
Hillary Clinton is running for President again. She says she will go even further than President Barack Obama has tried to do on deportations and allowing more people here illegally to stay and work with temporary permission. Clinton says she will do more for illegally people here than Obama. She does not mention working with Congress to clean up the immigration mess.
She doesn’t tell us that she voted for building more walls and fencing on the border when she was in the Senate. She doesn’t tell us that she was vehemently against driver’s licenses for people illegally here.
Her worst transgression on immigration is the one that has cost the lives of 10,000 or more men, women and children in the mountains and deserts of California and Arizona. Her husband, President Bill was the architect of “Operation Gatekeeper” in tandem with his Attorney General Janet Reno.
They deployed hundreds of Border Patrol agents to the well-known border crossing points on the San Diego/Tijuana border and around El Paso, Texas, in order to close those crossings down.
The flow of people heading north is like a flowing stream. The water flows unobstructed downward (people go northward). When a boulder rolls onto a stream and comes to rest, the water simply flows around it on both sides. Nothing stops the flow. Even a dam will eventually rise enough to flow over it. Flowing water simply cannot be stopped, it can only be detoured or delayed but it will flow as nature intended.
The flow of people seeking a better life and/or real jobs that pay real money is inexorable; it is a force of nature.
The flow northward wasn’t stopped by “Operation Gatekeeper.” The people heading north to “El Norte” shifted their routes from the coastal plain of San Diego a few miles east into the mountains that run from the coastal plain to the desert of Imperial Valley and Arizona with its own mountains. The desert floor’s temperatures hit 120 degrees in the summer while the mountains reach freezing and are snowed on in the winter.
Bodies are found all the time, summer and winter.
The Clinton method of handling illegal immigration was sending armed men to the border. But it wasn’t always illegal immigration the Clinton’s fought with armed men.
A little five-year-old Cuban boy named Elian Gonzalez made it across 90 miles of ocean to Florida on an inner tube raft. His mother didn’t make it. The Cuban Adjustment Act of 1966, “wet foot, dry foot” allowed Elian to be declared a legal immigrant with refugee status. He was turned over to relatives and that would have been the end of the story except for President Bill Clinton being in office and for his wife, Hillary, who supported his abortive attempts at immigration control and their leftist sympathies that led them back-handedly to support the Castro dictatorship in Cuba. Hillary was silent when armed agents raided the Miami home where Elian was living with his relatives. Hillary was silent when the boy was returned to Cuba at gunpoint.
Cubans die every day, week and month trying to escape Cuba’s dictatorship. Elian made it but he was forced at gunpoint to return to the Communist paradise of the Castro brothers thanks to President Clinton with the support of Hillary Clinton.
In a crass political move to support his wife’s run for the New York Senate seat in 2000, President Clinton pardoned a convicted terrorist and murderer who happened to be a Puerto Rican, who didn’t even ask for a pardon. But Hillary was running for the U.S. Senate in New York and New York has the most Puerto Ricans living and working there than any other state in the country. Hillary was silent on this egregious violation of law and order and counter-terrorism.
Hillary Clinton places politics above everything. She vocalizes cheap support for easing off on deportations but votes for more fencing on the border with Mexico. She voted yes for more fencing on September 29, 2006 for the “Secure Fence Act – HR 6061.”
Hillary Clinton: “Well look…I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.” Like a fence would solve immigration problems or control the flow across the border. Isn’t a fence like a boulder in the middle of the stream.
