Clinton Hits Trump On Immigration


With this primary season all but done Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, gears up to face Donald Trump, the Republican nominee. Clinton released this week her first attack ad against the real estate mogul using his own words against him on immigration, women, and Muslims against him. While also using the opinions of other Republican presidential candidate against him.

Clinton told a Latino audience here on Thursday that Donald Trump is doubling down on his promises to deport immigrants and build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. This move came as an attempt to cast doubt about Trump’s ability to moderate his views now that he has finally clinched the Republican nomination.

“We have to recognize that the kind of language coming from Donald Trump is hateful and we need to repudiate it. Now every election is a choice, and just yesterday, Donald Trump doubled down on his plan to create a deportation force to round up millions of people. “Clinton then listed Trump’s immigration positions, including his promises to build a wall along the border and “scrap” President Barack Obama’s executive orders on immigration. “Well,” Clinton said to cheers, “the best way to prevent that from happening is to make sure he never gets near the White House.”

Some small protest took place both inside and out of the Clinton event, which was held in the Latino neighborhood of Monterey Park. Some of the protestors attempted to interrupt Clinton’s remakes inside of the event but most of their chants were drowned out by Clinton’s supporters. Clinton for her part eloquently mentioned them.

“I think we would be a lot better off if we actually talked to each other instead of yelling at each other,” Clinton said. “Let the other side do the yelling.”

Clinton’s event is part of a two-day swing through California, whose primary will be held on June 7. Clinton headlined two fundraisers in Los Angeles on Thursday and met with top African American city officials. Clinton will travel to Northern California on Friday, where she will headline a rally in Oakland.
