The Republican National Committee (RNC) has released a new video exposing Hillary Clinton’s long list of egregious immigration inconsistency.
The video, “Hillary’s Immigration Flip-Flops,” shows that “Clinton only prioritizes what is politically convenient for her,” said RNC Director of Hispanic Communications Helen Aguirre Ferré. “Clinton panders for political gain–it’s hypocrisy at its worst. You just can’t trust her.”

Is Hillary Clinton for building a wall, or against building a wall?

Hillary was against driver’s licenses for illegals before she was for them. When she ran for president in 2008, Hillary repeatedly waffled on the issue before putting out a statement saying definitively that she would not support driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants. During the current presidential campaign, Clinton changed her position and supports granting driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants.
“I want to support states that are expanding health care and including undocumented children and others,” Clinton said during Tuesday’s debate, which was held at the Wynn hotel and casino.
“I want to open up the opportunity for immigrants to be able to buy in to the exchanges under the Affordable Care Act,” she continued, though stopping short of saying that illegal aliens should be allowed to qualify for subsidies under Obamacare.
That’s a marked shift from the position Clinton staked out in a previous attempt at health-care system overhaul.
“As to illegal aliens, we agree with you that we do not think the comprehensive health-care benefits should be extended to those who are undocumented workers and illegal aliens,” she said during a 1994 House hearing on the health-care reform proposal that she attempted to force into law as first lady, dubbed “Hillarycare.”
Clinton struggled mightily to communicate last night that deporting children is bad.
“I will not deport children,” she said after moderator Jorge Ramos pressed her multiple times on the issue. “I would not deport children. I do not want to deport family members either, Jorge.”
It was a significant moment, and it represented a departure (or, one might say, flip-flop) from her previous stance on the issue. Just two months ago, at a Democratic candidate forum, Clinton defended the practice of deporting children.
