Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is urging the Department of Homeland Security to assure illegal immigrants that they will get their fair share of Hurricane Katrina relief aid without fear of being deported.

In a statement posted to her official Senate web site on Wednesday, Clinton said that the DHS should "issue a formal statement reassuring immigrant victims of Hurricane Rita and Katrina that they can seek help from relief agencies without fear of deportation or being turned over to immigration authorities."

In a letter written directly to Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff, Clinton and other Senate Democrats complained that they first asked for Katrina amnesty for illegals more than two weeks ago, but have not received a response.

"In fact," they said, "we were surprised and troubled to learn that DHS has placed some individuals in deportation proceedings after these individuals sought assistance, despite the fact that the government had previously encouraged all storm victims to come forward to seek help.

"Particularly given the widely publicized reports that DHS will deport some immigrant victims of Katrina who sought assistance, we believe such a public assurance is crucial." Mrs. Clinton urged Chertoff to "terminate removal proceedings against those [illegal immigrants] who were placed in proceedings after they sought assistance."

Other Senate Democrats who signed onto Mrs. Clinton bid to obtain Katrina aid for illegal immigrants include Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Maria Cantwell, Barack Obama, Russ Feingold, Daniel Akaka, Frank Lautenberg, Joe Lieberman, Carl Levin, John F. Kerry, Chris Dodd, Pat Leahy and Jon Corzine.

DHS is doing their job. Nothing less, nothing more... but are getting ripped on for doing it properly. blink.gif Hillary Clinton needs to open up her eyes a bit and needs to rub off that face of stupid. yes.gif

People that are here illegally should be deported no matter what the circumstances.  I think that they should be given medical attention if needed, and should be treated like any other criminal.

What a pleasant example of humanity.
From what you have said, that means you would want two illegal immigrants, say a mother and child, deported, even if you knew that when they got home they would surely be tortured and murdered for their religious beliefs.

We have to have some control of our borders. We have way to many illegals using our social services and paying no tax because they are paid in cash. I have no problem with a set number of legal immigrations, but we have stop this open border.

Isn't that covered under persecution and asylum?

So I gave that scenario, say they hung onto the bottom of the Euro Train.
Or maybe the government didn't recognise their problem.

Just making a point, but maybe you are right, maybe they would be saved.

I'm sure that under special circumstances there would be acceptions.  However, I tend to agree that if a person is here under illegal means, they should be treated as such.  Provide basic medical care, and ship them back to whatever country of origin they came from...  
Let me emphasize the word illegal.  There are millions of people that are allowed citizenship into this country by legal means.  
It's not our problem or obligation to impede the economics of our country to aid these people who bypassed the legal means, and entered our country illegally.  

On a side note, Mrs. Clinton is only making an attempt to obtain the votes of the growing minority...and with any luck...pissing off the people that were undecided in their votes, and will hopefully vote against her now.

If Hillary gets elected, I will be the one wanting to move to another country. She is  real B. I always understood why Bill Clinton would want to cheat.
