Description

Hillary: ‘Absurd,’ ‘Appalling’ GOP Candidates Calling to ‘Pull People Out of Their Homes’ Friday, Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said it is “absurd and appalling” Republican candidates are calling to “pull people out of their homes and their workplaces” and deport them. When asked how she planned on dealing with 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, Clinton said, “Well, I’m glad you asked me that because I know that there are some on the other side who are seriously advocating to deport 11-12 million people who are working here. I find it the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive law enforcement effort, including perhaps National Guard and others, to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them on, I don’t know, in buses, boxcars, in order to take them across our border.” She continued, “I just find that not only absurd but appalling. And that’s why I support comprehensive immigration reform. I have for years. I supported it when I was in the Senate. I support it very strongly now. And it was a deep disappointment to me that when there was a bipartisan agreement voted on by the Senate to do just what we needed, a comprehensive immigration reform, that included an earned path to citizenship, that the House would not even give it a vote. so I will—I will oppose in every way I can—what I consider to be nothing but a political stunt. And I will also raise questions, as I am doing today, about what the realities of that kind of claim actually are.” Democrats meet in Minneapolis. Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton speaks at the DNC summer meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota Democratic National Committee Summer Meeting is being held in Minneapolis beginning Thursday The Latest: Clinton, Sanders appeal to national Democrats MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Here are the latest developments Friday from the Democratic National Committee meeting in Minneapolis, where four Democratic presidential candidates will address the party. DNC Head Debbie Wasserman Schultz BLASTS Republican Candidates Before Hillary Speech in Minneapolis https://youtu.be/DFHzJfwZxYQ Hillary Rodham Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley and Lincoln Chafee are making high-profile speeches to members of the Democratic National Committee during its summer meeting in Minneapolis. For the presidential field, it’s their first opportunity to appeal directly to a national gathering of current and former elected leaders, state committee members and other leaders in the Democratic Party who serve as super delegates for each presidential campaign. While the super delegates are not bound by any commitments they make to a candidate before next summer’s convention, they are highly sought after by presidential candidates. The DNC meeting comes as Clinton deals with questions about her use of a private email account and server as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state. It also comes as Vice President Joe Biden is considering entering the presidential campaign, which could pose a threat to Clinton’s position as the front-runner for the nomination.
