Thoughts: Of course she opposes this

Hillary Clinton hopes illegal immigrants will be able to vote for her when she runs for President in 2008 so it is no wonder she opposes a bill that would criminality illegal immigration.
Invoking Biblical themes, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton joined immigration advocates Wednesday to vow and block legislation seeking to criminalize undocumented immigrants. Clinton, a potential 2008 presidential candidate and relative latecomer to the immigration debate, made her remarks as the Senate prepares to take up the matter next week. Clinton renewed her pledge to oppose a bill passed in December by the House that would make unlawful presence in the United States _ currently a civil offense _ a felony. The Senate is set to consider a version of that legislation, as well as several other bills seeking to address the seemingly intractable issue of immigration reform. Surrounded by a multicultural coalition of New York immigration advocates, Clinton blasted the House bill as "mean-spirited" and said it flew in the face of Republicans' stated support for faith and values. "It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures," Clinton said, "because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself."
What a shocker. I especially love the comparison of the illegal immigrants to Jesus. I'm sure she even cares what God thinks. The only thing I would change on this bill is instead of criminalizing illigal immigration how about just a mandatory deportation to the South Pole? Then they won't even be a problem ever again.

I guess Hillary's move to the right doesn't involve immigration. I don't understand what these politicians don't understand about the word illegal. This is the whole problem with American Politics. Most politicians don't care about what is good and bad for the country. They just care about their own personal gains. Politicians, like Hillary, will do what ever they can do to pander to as many people as they can to buy votes.
