Last week, Hillary joined the liberal ranks in defense of DACA as the White House announced it would be terminating the program, marking the polar opposite of her stance on the issue from 2014.
“We’ve got to fight with everything we’ve got to #DefendDACA,” Clinton tweeted when news broke that President Trump might end Obama’s executive order.
However, in 2014, a mere two years after the program’s creation, Hillary was completely against it, stating what is now a firmly conservative opinion in a CNN interview with Christiane Amanpour:
“It may be safer but that’s not the answer,” she said about DACA, “We need to do more to provide border security…they should be sent back as soon as it can be determined where the adults in their families [are].”
“I think all of them who can be reunited with their families should be…but we’ve got to send a clear message that just because your child gets across the border that doesn’t mean your child gets to stay,” she continued.
In 2014, the border was inundated with children whose families sent them here, hoping to take advantage of the program.
Clinton carried on, sounding like a polished Breitbart executive, demonstrating she’s always been a politician through and through. It’s this lack of grounding in real ideals that the Democrats must avoid if they hope to ever resonate with the public on the level needed to reclaim Congress and the presidency.
“We don’t want to send a message that is contrary to our laws and encourages them to make the dangerous journey,” Clinton said.
