From the Daily Caller:

Clinton Campaign: Hillary’s Previous Support Of Open Borders Is About ‘Energy Policy’

ST. LOUIS, MO — Hillary Clinton said “her dream” is a “hemispheric common market” with “open borders” in a 2013 private speech to a Brazilian bank, according to a leaked transcript. Her campaign told The Daily Caller Sunday that comment was about “energy policy.”

“She does not support an open borders immigration policy,” Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said to TheDC after the second presidential debate. “What she has talked about in the past in having a multi-national approach to promoting clean energy so we have transmission systems that allow us to promote and transfer clean energy from North America to South America.”

Interesting. Let’s see what Clinton research director Tony Carrk said Hillary said in his email to John Podesta released by Wikileaks:
*Hillary Clinton Said Her Dream Is A Hemispheric Common Market, With Open Trade And Open Markets. *“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.” [05162013 Remarks to Banco Itau.doc, p. 28]
Carrk’s quote from Hillary’s transcript seems like a run-on sentence with the energy stuff coming after the fairly coherent first half of the sentence. It’s not impossible that the latest spin that Hillary was only talking about energy markets is correct. After all, trying to open up Mexico to American oil companies has been the central, if secretive, motivation of the Bush Dynasty for 50 years.

But that angle doesn’t seem to have occurred to Carrk who, presumably, read the entire secret transcript to make his summary of potential trouble spots.

Hillary’s “open borders” dream is almost exactly the same as Bill’s in Melbourne the day before 9/11.

Pfeiffer asked Fallon if they’d release the entire transcript, but Fallon deflected with Trump’s taxes.
