Hillary Clinton: Republicans Want To Round Up Illegal Immigrants And Put Them In "Boxcars"


At an event in Minneapolis this afternoon, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton characterized Donald Trump's immigration plan as one which calls for illegals to be "rounded up" and put in, "I don't know, buses or box cars in order to take them across the border."

QUESTION: How do you plan on dealing with 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S.?

HILLARY CLINTON: Well, I'm glad you asked me that, becasue some on the other side who are already advocating to deport 11, 12 million people...

I find it the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive government effort, which might include national guard and others, to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up and, I don't know, put them in buses or boxcars, in order to take them across the border.

I find that absurd but appalling. And that's why I support comprehensive immigration reform.
