Bouncing Hill: Clinton on a Mexican wall

Investors Business Daily - At a rally in Cleveland, likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton bemoaned all the talk among Republicans about building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to keep illegal immigrants out of the country.

“Don’t let anybody tell you we can’t make it in America anymore. We can, we are and we will,” Clinton said. “But in order to do that, we can’t be talking about building walls or turning the clock back.”

However, just four months ago, Clinton was singing a different tune. At a New Hampshire event in November, she was asked what she thought about “securing the Mexican border with some of the illegal immigrants that come in — just wondering.”

Clinton’s answer was: “Well, look. I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.”

Liberal commentator David Sirota tweeted the conflicting statements and asked: “Is Hillary Clinton for building a wall or against building a wall? I can’t figure it out. Can you?”
