Hillary Confusingly Rants About ‘Trump’s’ Immigrant Policies, People Rip It To Shreds

In a tweet on Friday, Hillary Clinton said that she was “heartbroken” over the “new” immigration policies of the Trump administration. She ranted to her near-23 million followers that the way the United States was enforcing immigration law was an “absolute disgrace.”

“Like so many others, I am horrified and heartbroken by what is happening to immigrant kids and families because of this administration’s disastrous policies,” Clinton began her rant.

The former presidential nominee continued, “We now know that more than 700 kids were separated from their parents between October 2017 and April 2018. As a mother and a grandmother, it’s devastating to even imagine.”

And, “Not only that – this administration built on their “zero tolerance” policy earlier this month. The result? Nearly 700 more kids were separated from their families in the first two weeks of the new program. Think about that. Hundreds of families torn apart in two weeks.”

Clinton then shared a quote from Muzaffar Chishti of the Migration Policy Institute.

“In the immigration context, the government has never taken a stand against the protection of kids in this country. For the first time, it is now formally taking a position that explicitly goes against the best interests of kids,” he said, as she tweeted.

The runner-up in the 2016 presidential campaign then lamented that she felt “helpless” and said the country should be graded by how it is treating “the most vulnerable among us.”

“It is now the official policy of the US government – a nation of immigrants – to separate children from their families. That is an absolute disgrace,” she tweeted. “If you’re like me, there’s nothing worse than feeling helpless.”

Clinton added, “There is no more important test of our country than the way we treat the most vulnerable among us, especially children. We cannot turn away from what’s happening on our watch – we have to act.”

We’ve all seen the troubling photos of migrant children who were separated from their parents at the border and detained in holding cells (See here, here, and here).


What Clinton failed to mention, and which several people quickly reminded her of, the current immigration policy was authorized by former President Barack Obama.

“But just devastating now that Trump is President, right?” One user questioned. “I don’t remember your outrage when thousands of kids separated from their parents under Obama ended up victims of human trafficking.”

Others pointed out to Clinton that, as America is a “nation of immigrants,” it is also a nation of laws.

“They are enforcing the law,” one user responded.

“The most vulnerable among us,” sounds like a line from pro-life centers across the nation. Is Clinton arguing for protecting the unborn? Several people seemed to make the connection.

One user simply asked, “Are you referring to Planned Parenthood?”
