george mitchell. >> anybody who thinks that hillary clinton is not in on the policy of this administration, doesn't know hillary and doesn't know the administration. i love the notion that instead of having a secretary of state that sits there, and worries over these spots, she has agents out at these spots. and i also don't believe, i believe it is much too early, to write her off as no john foster dulles. this woman has such personal and imuintellectual power, that when she starts to fill that office you will know. >> i don't know, i think it will be a big leap to say that the country will see that type leadership again. but i would not discount her ability to come out as a very strong leader, especially when you compare that to the situation and kind of the political falls, pitfalls of president obama. she may come out very strong in the end. >> well a lot of people think that obama has been so smart about keeping in that, there's somebody keeping her in her place by having all these other envoys across the word. and i think that's possible but it's also true that no one

widely by former president george w. bush when he was trying to persuade congress to approve immigration reform with legalization for the millions of immigrants in the us illegal. but there is another view: that mass immigration depresses low wage jobs to the point where us citizens can't afford to live on them. >> we would have eliminated the bulk of structural poverty, but for the fact that the vast majority of people here today living in poverty are here either because of immigration or they're the descendants of immigrants since 1970. there is an inextricable link, not only between the escalating poverty rates, the medically uninsured, and the structurally impoverished in our immigration program. >> that view has become more prevalent since the recession: that immigrants take jobs americans in fact would do, but not for the sub-par wages immigrants are willing to accept. proponents say mass immigration, particularly of uneducated persons, has a double-whammy effect on low-income, uneducated americans. it depresses their wages and creates a larger pool of applicants for lo
