LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Questions about immigration dominated a forum for Democratic presidential candidates put on Sunday by the Spanish-language television network Univision, CNN reports.
Front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton condemned what she called “very destructive” rhetoric on the issue.
Other Democrats blasted Republicans for demanding to clamp down on the U.S.-Mexico border. The candidates also took implicit jabs at GOP contenders who refused to sign up for a similar Spanish-language forum.
“There are many in the political world and, frankly, in the broadcast world today that take a particular aim at the Latino population,” Clinton said. “I think it is very destructive. It undermines our unity as a country.”
She cited an immigration bill the House of Representatives passed in 2006 as a “particularly egregious example.”
