Hillary Clinton Calls Martha’s Vineyard Refugee Crisis ‘Human Trafficking’

On Friday, Hillary Clinton agreed with an MSNBC host’s assessment that sending 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard was “literally human trafficking” and claimed no one wanted “open borders.”

As a member of “Morning Joe,” Clinton echoed host Joe Scarborough’s sharply critical remarks about Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ move, which sparked a media firestorm amid heated debate over how the country is handling illegal immigration triggered. Scarborough repeatedly called DeSantis “human trafficking” and accused him of using innocent people as political pawns.

“I think Joe, you exposed the craziness of the times we live in, where some politicians would rather not just have a problem, but exacerbate it to the extent of literal human trafficking, as you said,” she said. “So many other Americans — I still think the majority of Americans — are kind and generous, and when people in need land on their doorstep, they will respond. They will feed and house them, and the kids in the AP Spanish class will be released from high school so they can translate. That’s the kind of American spirit we’re trying to celebrate at the Clinton Global Initiative.”

Clinton added that “no one wants open borders who has an idea of ​​how governments and countries work.”
