Clinton Says She’s Against Open Borders, But Speeches Prove Otherwise

Hillary Clinton denied advocating for open borders, but she supported exactly that in a speech revealed during the Podesta leaks.

When Wednesday night’s presidential debate turned to immigration, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump sparred on the subject of “open borders.”

Clinton denied Trump’s claims that she’s for open borders, but a speech leaked in the Podesta hack reveals otherwise:
