Clinton’s deputy national policy director Jake Sullivan outlined several Irish policies that would be undertaken in a Clinton White House come 2009. He said Clinton would immediately appoint an American special envoy on Ireland who would maintain an office in the White House and report directly to the president.

Clinton would also firmly focus on economic development in Northern Ireland, Sullivan said, and have her secretary of commerce and other government agencies get involved in developing strategies for Ireland.

She would also, he stressed, work on immigration reform. “There are 50,000 Irish undocumented who need a path to legal status,” Sullivan said. “They need to be brought out of the shadows. Hillary as president will move quickly to make that happen.”

Debbie McGoldrick of the Irish Voice.

Just an odd thing. With all the clamouring from the various Hispanic communities that are hurting in many ways over this issue and little or no attention being paid to immigration during this campaign, I find it hard to believe that settling the illegal Irish immigration issue is that important. My Irish husband got his Visa and his permanent resident status legally, yes we were apart for a year while the paper work went through, yes we paid and paid and paid all the fees, but the point is that most of the Irish illegals knew better and took the gamble, they are not desperate to leave Ireland, with rapidly growing economy and modernization.

I think some of the difference between the groups might be the level of job they can fill. Irish are already fluent in English, making them qualified to fill many jobs. Unfortunately non skilled, non fluent workers are very easily replaced, hence there is no clamour to protect them.

Hillary intends to steal this election any way she can. If encouraging Irish to come over and break the laws of this nation will get her votes, then she's certainly going to encourage them to do that.

Northern Ireland does not need any help from us. They are developing quite well. Also, given her "development" work for New York, this should frighten the people of Northern Ireland.

Talk about double standard? I wonder what the outrage would be if this was Mexico?

Also, so many people seemed to be concerned that Obama will push black issues if he gets into office....where are those same people?

Why the double standard?

I don't see a double standard. Hillary welcomes all illegals and it's all wrong.

So she is in favor of getting undocumented Irish on the path to legal status and not Latinos? Aren't Latinos part of her core base, now that she lost the black vote?
