76. If anyone would like facts and not memes about Hillary Clinton's stance in immigration reform

Co-sponsored comprehensive immigration reform in 2004

Q: Were you missing in action when Obama and McCain and Kennedy started formulating comprehensive immigration reform?
A: I co-sponsored comprehensive immigration reform in 2004. So Iíve been on record on behalf of this for quite some time. Representing New York, the home of the Statue of Liberty, bringing all of our immigrants to our shores, has been not only an extraordinary privilege, but given me the opportunity to speak out on these issues. When the House passed the most mean-spirited provision that said, if you were to give any help whatsoever to someone here illegally, you would commit a crime, I stood up and said that would have criminalized the Good Samaritan and Jesus Christ himself. I have been on record on this against this kind of demagoguery, this mean-spiritedness. It is something that I take very personally, because I have not only worked on behalf of immigrants; I have been working to make conditions better for many years. But letís do it in a practical, realistic approach.
