[Former President] Clinton, who recently made fundraising stops for Democrats in Minnesota and New Jersey, also said he was embarrassed by the recent immigration debate.
He noted that Mexico had become one of the U.S.’s top 10 creditors.
“These people are our bankers,” Clinton said. “Doesn’t it embarrass you that these poor people are trying to sneak over the Rio Grande River to find a living in this country and we want to stop that? But we’re only too happy to turn around and say, ‘Don’t spend your own money on those poor illegal immigrants to give them an education and get a job in Mexico. Loan it to us.'”
I’m not at all embarrassed that Americans want people who come here to live and work to follow our rules. Nor am I embarrassed that Mexican investors find better opportunities for their capital in the USA than they do in Mexico. What does embarrass me is an American ex-president who takes a cheap shot at his own country in order to score points with leftist voters.
