Sunder and Clinton debate on immigration reform

Sunder and Clinton debate on immigration reform

Seems that Latinos votes have become extremely important in this presidential campaign because Sunders and Clinton have been exchanging words about immigration reform that took place nine years ago.

Former Secretary of State and New York senator thinks that this matter is not complicated. She and Barack Obama, who were both senators, then supported the bill, while Sanders did not.

Clinton stated that she was very proud of that decision and what they managed to do. During their political history Clinton and Obama didn’t always agree with Kennedy and now when legislation died thing became more complicated. The bill’s end began when Clinton, Obama including Sanders turned their back to Kennedy and supported an amendment that changed guest – worker relationship. Kennedy warned them about their actions and expressed concern that this amendment might kill immigration reform.

People who are in charge for political campaign of Sanders state that Clinton’s behavior is hypocritical because she in fact voted for the amendment and now she tries to divert the attention from that.
