Update: The Anchoress drives home Hillary’s stupid punchline.
Looks like the influence of top open-borders adviser Patti Solis Doyle (who, you may recall, refers to herself as the “Latina queena“) is dominating the Hillary campaign and Hillary’s closest left-hand woman. Doyle is the daughter of illegal immigrants from Mexico and outspoken on the issue.
After briefly flirting with a Buchanan-esque tougher-on-borders stance, then moving to back to the left, then keeping quiet after botching her October debate answer on illegal alien driver’s licenses, then sounding tough again on criminal illegal aliens, Hillary is brazenly courting the illegal alien vote. In Nevada, she combined her housing bailout agenda with an open-borders flavor in a visit to Mexican illegal aliens who are apparently defaulting on home loans they should never have obtained in the first place. Mira:
Clinton and her busload of traveling press moved from there to the popular local Mexican restaurant Lindo Michoacan, where a “roundtable” that was actually square passed a microphone around to tell her people’s concerns about the mortgage crisis and foreclosures. She took notes and munched on tortilla chips.
In broken English, one woman told Clinton how she wasn’t making money as a broker anymore.
“I have no income at all,” she said. “So how will I survive?”
Choking up with emotion, the woman said, “In my neighborhood, there are brand-new homes, but the value is nothing. I’m glad you are here so I can tell you, because you’re going to be the president, I know.”
A man shouted through an opening in the wall that his wife was illegal.
“No woman is illegal,” Clinton said, to cheers.
So, she’s only exempting illegal alien women from immigration law?
Next thing you know, she’ll be naming Elvira Arellano an honorary campaign co-chairman. Chairwoman. Whatever.
Looks like she needs a little sleep, because her open-borders babble won’t even make sense to her target audience:
Clinton said unscrupulous lending leads to bad mortgages, which lead to foreclosures, which lead to people with nowhere to go and vacant neighborhoods that can go rapidly downhill.
“We treat these problems as if one is guacamole and one is chips, when … they both go together,” she said.
