The other border building bigot running for president — Clinton

Hillary Rodham Clinton, like Donald Trump, is a racist and a nativist whose material actions have irrevocably harmed the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrants. But don’t let my words, or my published magazine articles convince you, rather, listen to the candidate’s words themselves:

“I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants” — Hillary Rodham Clinton

“But we have so to send a clear message, just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay.” — Hillary Rodham Clinton

“I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in, and I do think that you have to control your borders…” — Hillary Rodham Clinton
