In 2014, CNN asked Hillary Clinton if she would allow immigrant children pouring into the U.S. to stay or send them home. Clinton responded with concern, saying the U.S. needed to do more to provide border security.
“We have to send a clear message. Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay,” Clinton said. “So, we don’t want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey.”
