Hillary Clinton Defends Immigrants, Cites Constitution (ILLEGALS)
Yahoo.Com ^ | February 16, 2017 | Alexandra Mondalek

Posted on 02/16/2017 10:58:31 AM PST by BradtotheBone

On Thursday, hundreds gathered in New York’s Grand Central Terminal to honor the late Dominican designer Oscar de la Renta, whom the U.S. Postal Service commemorated on a series of stamps. Hillary Clinton, Anna Wintour, Michael Bloomberg, and Anderson Cooper all took the stage to share heartfelt remembrances of de la Renta while simultaneously broadcasting messages of inclusion.

Clinton, wearing a magenta jacket paired with a gold statement necklace and black trousers, shared her love of the designer’s clothes as well as personal stories of vacationing with her family in Punta Cana with de la Renta and his wife, Annette.

“I remember as though it were yesterday, standing in my first receiving line in the White House for the Kennedy Center Honors,” Clinton recalled. “I had bought this dress off the rack and Oscar and Annette were among the guests. And so Oscar goes through the receiving line and as I shake his hand and I’m welcoming him to the White House, he said, ‘That’s my dress.’ I said, ‘Yes, it is.’ He said, ‘Well, I’m calling you tomorrow.’ And he did.”

The former secretary of state also made sure to make a slight dig at President Trump.

“Oscar de la Renta was an immigrant … and aren’t we proud and grateful that he was,” she said, noting that the corner of the stamps read “USA Forever.” She added, “What a fitting person to be chosen by our Postal Service — mentioned, by the way, in the Constitution, something we should all read and reread in today’s times.

“Oscar de la Renta was an immigrant”

And I am sure he came into the country LEGALLY! The issue is those that come here ILLEGALLY!

The vast majority of my ancestors immigrated to North America over the past 400 years - all of them legally. I have no problem with immigrants. I have a huge problem with criminals: illegal immigrants, democrats, and especially the Clintons.

Why do the liberals constantly and incorrectly, conflate the issues of legal immigration with issues of illegal aliens??? They are two separate and distinct matters.

What does the fact that Oscar de LA Renta was a legal immigrant have to do with how we grapple with illegal aliens today??????

I only buy Purple Heart stamps. What will they do if no one buys these Oscar stamps? Why is the USPS even spending money to make stamps of him?

A fashion designer? I'm supposed to be "proud and grateful" that a fashion designer moved to America? Clintoon is crazier than I thought she was.

Nobody in my family ancestry was an immigrant. They were all colonists and pioneers just like many other American CItizens.

I’ve heard rumblings that she wants to be Mayor of New York City and personally don’t believe she’s given up 100% on being President.

Hillary really just loves to hike in the woods with Bill, but she is coming out, for the children, in planning for her run for President in 2020.

Why is Hillary promoting a fashion designer? The media went batshit crazy when Kellyannne Conway mentioned Ivanka. The hypocrisy is amazing.

HRC missed the irony of talking about vacationing in a place that many of her admirers (illegals) couldn't afford and from where they were escaping by coming to the US.

Errr, ah, I goofed on my censoring of a cuss word, and it got through anyway somehow.

I think I’m too excited after that press conference :O

Please save me from myself and delete my post #19 in this thread.

Very sorry, stepping away from the keyboard now!

“The vast majority of my ancestors immigrated to North America over the past 400 years - all of them legally. I have no problem with immigrants. I have a huge problem with criminals: illegal immigrants, democrats, and especially the Clintons.”


3 great, great grandparents, 6 great grandparents and 3 grandparents all immigrated to this country within the last 110 years, and my wife immigrated 18 years ago. All of them legally. My wife is now a citizen, as were about 3/4 of the others mentioned. They all learned English (some better than others, as is natural), they all paid their taxes, none of them were criminals (well, except for my maternal grandfather making some bathtub booze during Prohibition, but he didn’t sell it) - in short, they did it the right way. BTW, that same grandfather volunteered for the Army at age 35 in 1942, when he could have stayed home easily...he wanted to repay and contribute to this country.

I, too, have no problem with immigrants - so long as they are legal coming in, and abide by our laws once here (and I don’t care much about truly victimless crimes).

I am CERTAIN that Donald Trump feels exactly the same way. HIS grandparents immigrated, HIS mother immigrated, and TWO of his wives immigrated (plus one daughter-in-law???). He has employed thousands of immigrants, and rented to thousands. He doesn’t oppose immigrants, just criminal leeches from other countries - we have enough native-born criminal leeches without importing them, thank you very much.

Oh, are WRT that ugly (inside and out) old hag, to Hell with her.

“The US population has doubled in the last 70 years. Time to stop all immigration for a real long time.”


More than that, I believe. We were at about 130 million during WW2, and we’re at roughly 320 now. Yes, we should probably limit it quite a bit, but not a complete stop. Let’s take a 5 or 10-year breather, get our economy straightened out, our unemployed reemployed as much as possible, and make sure that we can vet ANYONE, from ANY country, very well once we open the doors again.

A country purposely and systematically de industrializing through offshoring, like the USA is currently doing, doesn’t need any more people. At all, ever.

Trump is re-industrializing us. I think that people will see, over the next few years, the advantages in quality of the goods, and in the quality of life. Maybe I’m wrong, and if I am then maybe we shut the doors, but I don’t think that this is advantageous just yet.

God forbid a stamp for a fallen soldier at the hands of ME butchers, or a contractor strung up on bridge, or one of those 250 ME Christian children kneaded to death in the bread machine.

No. Much better to have the face of a feathered dress and ruffle maker on a US stamp.

See #7 #Sandrat.

Those yahoos tried to make it sound like Hellary was referring to immigrants in the Constitution, when actually she was talking about the Post Office.

Go figger.

"They were all colonists and pioneers just like many other American CItizens."

If it is on the North (or South) American Continent, and descended from Homo Sapiens Sapiens, it is an immigrant. Some just got here earlier than others.
