What is her position on illegal immigration, again?
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced last week his endorsement of the former first lady during a rally at the University of California, Los Angeles. At the same time, the mayor was named a chair of Mrs. Clinton’s national campaign. Associated Press reports that Clinton campaign officials had actively sought Villaraigosa’s endorsement backing. In April, his top political consultant joined the Clinton campaign as its California director.
David Horowitz, president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles, says the LA mayor and Senator Clinton — whom many consider to be a shoo-in for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008 — clearly have the same agenda. For example, he says the Democratic Party is completely dedicated to the open borders agenda.
“The Democratic Party is a very left-wing party, far more left than it is willing to say during election season,” says the political commentator. “It would like us to have open borders. It would like all these illegals to be voting. It’s a dreadful party these days — and the fact that Villaraigosa is endorsing Hillary is only just icing on that cake.”
Villaraigosa, an ardent supporter of illegal immigrants, has appeared at rallies across the Golden State aimed at bringing about change in U.S. immigration law that would allow illegal aliens to gain citizenship. Speaking to a group of several thousand participating in an illegal immigrant rally in March, he said that his “proudest moment as mayor of Los Angeles” was greeting the 500,000 illegal immigrants at the previous year’s march.
According to Horowitz, several radio talk-show hosts in the Los Angeles area have nicknames for the mayor, referring to him as “Mayor Reconquista” and “Mayor Villagaraza” — an obvious reference to the radical pro-Hispanic organization La Raza. But Horowitz makes one thing clear: “Hillary is the inspiration for Villaraigosa — not the other way around,” he says.
Hillary Clinton once said that she was “adamantly against illegal aliens” in a 2003 interview with WBAC Radio, but has now given a high-profile illegal alien advocate a prime place in her presidential campaign.
The Associated Press reported that Raul Yzaguirre, who was president of the National Council of La Raza had signed on as co-chair to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Amazing, isn’t she?
