Clinton: Republicans Want to Round Up Illegal Immigrants, Shove Them in Boxcars
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton once again took aim at her Republican rivals Friday afternoon, accusing them during a press conference of wanting to round up illegal immigrants and throw them in trains.
Clinton was asked by a reporter how she would handle the millions of illegal immigrants currently in the country. “Well, I’m glad you asked me that,” she responded. “Because I know that there are some on the other side who are seriously advocating to deport 11-12 million people who are working here.”
She continued, saying it was “the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive law enforcement effort– including perhaps National Guard and others– to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them, I don’t know, in buses, boxcars, in order to take them across our border.”
“I just find that not only absurd, but appalling,” Clinton said.
