Clinton: Immigration Path to Citizenship ‘Absolutely Essential’David Banks
Democrat Hillary Clinton, in interview with Telemundo News, committed to a 100-day timeline to review the current immigration system if elected president.
- “I believe in comprehensive immigration reform” that would include “path to citizenship, which I think is absolutely essential”
- “I will not be deporting parents. I will not be breaking up families”
- As president, will direct direct officials “to take a hard look about how we change the -- way the laws are applied so we’re not breaking up families and deporting, you know, the -- the father, the mother”
- Says Obama admin. policy of aggressive deportation “was part of a strategy” aimed in part at winning Republican backing for immigration reform, but “that strategy is no longer workable”
- NOTE: Clinton was in Miami for Marc Anthony concert to launch “Latinas for Hillary” voter outreach
- “I really admire and like Marc Anthony,” she says. “I’ve known him since I was first lady and really admire his music, and his energy, and the crowds that he inspires and attracts”
