The Administration Reacts to Illegal Immigration

In Shift, Clinton Calls for 'Amnesty' for Jailed U.S. Journalists

“The two journalists and their families have expressed great remorse for this incident and I think everyone is very sorry that it happened," Clinton told State Department officials at a town hall meeting in Washington. "What we hope for now is that these two young women would be granted amnesty through the North Korean system and be allowed to return home to their families as soon as possible."

And what had these two reporters done wrong?

“A North Korean court last month sentenced Laura Ling, 32, and Euna Lee, 36, to 12 years of "reform through labor" for illegally crossing the border and for commiting [sic] a "grave crime."

And all Secretary Clinton wants for them is amnesty and a trip home? What about Social Security-type benefits and a path to citizenship?
