It is not an unusual thing to see a crook using criminals for their benefit. The criminal is more comfortable around those who have no regard for the law. So, we should not be surprised that this is the first trick Clinton pulls from her bag.
The 730,000 young people brought to the U.S. as children without legal status are prohibited from voting. Known as Dreamers, they’ve proven themselves to be a powerful organizing force in American politics, mounting a high-profile public campaign that pressured President Barack Obama to grant many of them and their parents reprieves from deportation through two executive orders.
Hillary wishes to use this vast group to get registration up among the Latino community. Those who are eligible to vote will be called on to stop Trump. This should be very effective considering the things Trump has said concerning immigration.
Clinton believes she can harness their power in a more formal way, particularly given her opponent. Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric has sparked outrage and fear within the Latino community.
He’s promised to revoke Obama’s executive orders within the first 100 days of his presidency, calling them the “most unconstitutional actions ever undertaken by a president.”
This may be hard for Trump to overcome. This is particularly the case if we consider the latest polls.
Time will tell.
