Clinton Claims She's "Historically" Not Used Term "Illegal Immigrant"
Clinton Claims She's "Historically" Not Used Term "Illegal Immigrant." RAMOS: "So first question, would you commit right now to not use the term 'illegal' or 'illegals' when referring to undocumented immigrants." CLINTON: "Oh yeah. You know, that was a poor choice of words and obviously, historically, I haven't used it since and won't use it in the future." (Hillary Clinton, Remarks At Black And Brown Forum, 1/11/16)
FLASHBACK TO HISTORY: In A 2003 Radio Interview, Clinton Said, "I Am Adamantly Against Illegal Immigrants." "We've got to do several things and I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants. I made this exception basically on humanitarian grounds because of the individual story but certainly we've got to do more at our borders. And people have to stop employing illegal immigrants. Come up to Westchester, go to Suffolk and Nassau counties, stand in the street corners in Brooklyn or the Bronx - you're going to see loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work and construction work and domestic work."

Clinton Awkwardly Claims She Supports Border Fence, But Not Wall
Clinton Claims She Supports Border Fence, Not Wall. RAMOS: "Now, if you believe in building a wall, what is the difference between your idea and Donald Trump's idea with building a wall with Mexico?" CLINTON: "Well, I think that everybody that I know of in the Democratic Party, and it used to be Republican too as you know Jorge, those who favored immigration reform favored border security. And that's Ted Kennedy, that's obviously my husband, President Obama, myself, even somebody like President George W. Bush who we forget was trying very hard to pass immigration reform and I think gave up too easily. So we do need to have secure borders, and what that will take is a combination of technology and physical barriers." ROMAS: "So you want a wall then." CLINTON: No." RAMOS: "You said that." CLINTON: "Well, I voted for border security and some of it was a fence, I don't think we ever called it a wall but maybe in some places it was a wall. But it was aimed at controlling our borders."
