Clinton’s Anti-Immigrant Stance

Nov 26, 2018

Hillary Clinton gave a speech last week in Europe, in which she said, “I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame.... I think it is fair to say Europe has done its part, and must send a very clear message ‘we are not going to be able to continue to provide refuge and support,’ because if we don’t deal with the migration issue, it will continue to roil the body politic.”

Perhaps it is politically convenient for Clinton, the former Democratic candidate in 2016, to appear to be a wise advisor–to forget her role as Secretary of State in the Obama administration. She directly supervised the wars that have destabilized the entire Middle East and reduced whole countries to ruin: Iraq, then Afghanistan by direct U.S. bombardment, Central America by economic and military strangulation–wars that have resulted in the massive migration of millions who have no home–no country left to stay in.
