In the 2016 Democratic primary race, it is a battle of who can give away the most free stuff and who can pander to the most minority groups. It is likely that whoever does these things best — Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders — will be the Democratic nominee come November.
Hillary Clinton has taken the free stuff sweepstakes even further now by promising to devote an entire federal agency to help a group of people who aren't even U.S. citizens — or in the country legally.
The Daily Caller reports that Clinton has officially announced she will create the Office of Immigration Affairs, which in part will help advocate on behalf of illegal aliens.
The former secretary of state would create a new agency called the Office of Immigrant Affairs to coordinate federal immigration policy and services, reported The Wall Street Journal. She’ll make the announcement in conjunction with a scheduled endorsement from the New York State Immigrant Action Fund, an advocacy group for immigrants.
The new agency would help illegal immigrants, a Clinton aide told TheWSJ, and coordinate programs and policies at the local, state and federal level to help “integrate” immigrants and refugees into their communities.
Although Bernie Sanders has not yet announced such an agency, it is likely, based on past statements his campaign has made that he would also support this. Sanders has indicated in the past that he would like to make college tuition — you guessed it — free for illegal immigrants.
