During the last presidential debate, Hillary Clinton was asked about her support for a policy of completely open borders and an end to America’s immigration laws. She made the amazing claim that she “only meant” she wanted open borders for energy policies. Whatever her claims, Hillary Clinton is on the same open borders page as the United Nations.
During the October 19 debate, GOP nominee Donald Trump noted that, in speeches she gave to high-dollar corporations, Hillary Clinton insisted she was for open borders.
In a private, richly-paid speech that Hillary delivered to a Brazilian bank on May 16, 2013, she said: “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, sometime in the future, with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.”
The section of Hillary’s address to the foreign bankers was confirmed by a release from the hacker site WikiLeaks.
For her part, Hillary claimed that she doesn’t want completely open borders and pointed to the segment of her speech where she mentioned energy and claimed she was only talking about sharing an electric grid across international boundaries.
“If you went on to read the rest of the sentence, I was talking about energy,” she said during the last debate. “We trade more energy with our neighbors than we trade with the rest of the world combined.”
But this seeming obfuscation doesn’t reflect many of her past claims nor even the policy proposals on her own website.
Calling her plan the “Breaking Every Barrier Agenda,” Hillary says on her website that she wants to “break down all the barriers” to make things fair in the United States. Part of that plan is to “keep immigrant families together” by offering a sort of amnesty to allow illegal aliens to stay in the U.S. by offering a “path to citizenship.”
After reviewing her plan, the Center for Immigration Studies’s Steve Camarota projected that, based on the minimal figures Clinton has put forth thus far, Clinton could add 10 million new immigrants to the U.S. during her first term alone — in addition to the 11 million illegal immigrants to whom Clinton said she plans to grant amnesty within her first 100 days in office.
In much of this, Hillary Clinton finds common cause with the United Nations, which recently announced its “New Urban Agenda,” a plan that includes unlimited migration across national borders.
Clinton would agree with the U.N.’s plan for unlimited immigration. After all, in another WikiLeaks release, Clinton insisted that putting limits on immigration was “fundamentally un-American.” Clinton made this claim in a speech to Goldman Sachs in October of 2013. In her address, she attacked those who want to put limits on immigration.
“She’s totally in line with the U.N. agenda, on board with everything they do,” economist Patrick Wood recently told WND.com.
“She’s making a pre-announcement here that she’s going to follow the U.N. agenda,” Wood said. “She’s signaling to her fellow globalists that she’s 100 percent on board with their agenda.”
