Hillary Shows Her Excellent Grasp of History
Hillary Clinton is convinced that a House immigration proposal is a bad thing. Such a bad thing it would have made the Good Samaritan a criminal.
I seriously doubt it. Samaria and Judea were both Roman provinces so I suspect that it would have been impossible for the Good Samaritan to have immigrated illegally. (Technically, I don’t think they were even separate provinces. More like counties. They’re both part of the West Bank now.) Of course, that’s the minor one…
Accusing Republicans of betraying family values, Senator Clinton said a House immigration bill would turn “probably even Jesus himself” into a criminal.
Now this one I’m really unclear on. Would a felony conviction carrying a few years in jail and a deportation order have really bothered a guy already facing capital punishment? Come on Hill, Jesus was a convicted criminal. Nothing the US House of Representatives can do is going to make any difference on that score.
Or maybe Hillary was thinking of this Jesus…but apparently he’s already a criminal.
A teenage boy whose escape prompted a judge to charge five Department of Children’s Services workers with contempt of court will be tried as an adult, the Davidson County district attorney general’s office said yesterday.
Jesus Vasquez yesterday waived his right to a hearing in Metro’s Juvenile Court to decide whether he should stay in the youth system or have his case transferred to Davidson County Criminal Court for proceedings under adult laws.
