During Thursday’s PBS moderated Democratic debate, Hillary Clinton said that “we should be deporting criminals,” but not immigrant families who, in coming here illegally, are by definition criminals.

“I am against the raids,” Clinton explained. “I’m against the kind of inhumane treatment that is now being visited upon families, waking them up in the middle of the night, rounding them up.”

“We should be deporting criminals, not hard-working immigrant families who do the best they can and often are keeping economies going in many places in our country.”
