Hillary: Raids Not an ‘Appropriate Tool to Enforce the Immigration Laws’

CSN News Reports that Hillary Clinton says “no,” she is not going to be the next deporter-in-chief, a nickname given to President Obama by a Latino group that opposes deportations.

The issue came to a head over the holidays, when Immigration and Customs Enforcement began rounding up and deporting adults with children who entered this country illegally after May 2014. “This should come as no surprise,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement. “I have said publicly for months that individuals who constitute enforcement priorities, including families and unaccompanied children, will be removed.”

The raids prompted outrage among some Democrats and their Hispanic allies. “I have come out against the raids,” Clinton told Fusion Monday night. “I do not think the raids are an appropriate tool to enforce the immigration laws. In fact, I think they are divisive, they are sowing discord and fear.
