Memo Reveals Rahm Emanuel Advised President Clinton To Achieve ‘Record Deportations’ [View all]

Part of the memo also included Emanuel’s analysis of how Democrats could handle the GOP on issues of crime:

Since Nixon’s Law and Order campaign, crime has been a staple in the GOP platform. Over the past four years, your policies have redefined the issue and allowed Democrats to achieve parity. The question you now face is how do we build on the last four years?

The answer to the question from Emanuel was to offer the spectacle of record deportations of those suspected of being criminal aliens along with 10,000 additional “anti-violent gang” prosecutors. Rahm said the 10,000 number was a useful corollary to the 100,00 number of new police officers cited in the 1994 Crime Bill.
