Hillary: Trump’s Immigration Rhetoric Goes Against American Values

Monday while campaigning in the New York City borough of Queens, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is “using” the issue of immigration in a way that “really goes against American values.”

Clinton said, “The point about immigration and the way that Donald Trump is using this issue along with Ted Cruz and other Republicans really goes against American values. We are a nation of immigrants. And I am proud to have represented New York for eight years. I am proud to be the secretary of state standing up for our values and part of the value is that we are the land of freedom and opportunity. We have the Statue of Liberty and Trump’s rhetoric, his divisiveness, his incitement of aggressive behavior and violence is absolutely unacceptable and needs to be called out.”
