Ah, I’d forgotten about this clip. Mediaite reminded me by digging it up this morning as evidence of Democratic hypocrisy about DREAMers at the highest levels. There’s really no reason to stop at 2014 in Hillary’s case, though. Back in 2003, she told an interviewer, “I am adamantly against illegal immigrants.” Thirteen years later, hoping to make Latinos a linchpin of her presidential victory, she supported open borders as strongly as a prominent liberal could, assuring Jorge Ramos at one point that essentially all adult illegals would be safe from deportation under her administration as long as they lacked a criminal record. In 2015, when her long slog to electoral defeat was just beginning, she vowed to build on Obama’s DACA and DAPA amnesties by granting legal status to parents of DREAMers — which amounted in practice to legalizing any adult illegal who happened to have brought a child with them when they crossed the border years ago. Her “evolution” on this issue mirrors her “evolution” on gay marriage, racing to catch up with leftist orthodoxy and then embracing it noisily once she’s arrived.

This clip isn’t quite what Mediaite presents it as, though. She’s talking here about the migrant crisis in 2014, when parents in Central America sent their kids north, frequently unaccompanied, to cross the U.S. border. They were *recent* arrivals, often intercepted by Border Patrol and sent to detention facilities immediately upon entering the U.S. The case for legalizing DREAMers rests on the fact that they’re not recent — they’re fully (or mostly) assimilated into American culture, sometimes not even speaking the language of their country of birth fluently....
