Clinton at immigration event: ‘Love trumps hate’

The Hill

Hillary Clinton kept Republican frontrunner Donald Trump in her sights as she appeared at a Chicago immigration workshop to thank the volunteers for their work guiding people through the immigration process.

"I know some people are afraid by some things that they are hearing," she told the group in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, a largely Hispanic area.

"Love trumps hate."

Trump's rivals have upped the criticism of his candidacy in light of protests and violence that have broken out at his rallies over the past few days. Trump's long faced criticism from Hispanic groups for his controversial comments about Mexican immigrants.

Clinton appeared with Rep. Luis Gutierrez, the Illinois Democrat who helped to organize the volunteers, as well as Hispanic civil rights activist Dolores Huerta and United Farm Workers president Arturo Rodriguez. Clinton called to increase in fee waivers and English-language teachers for those applying for citizenship programs.

While some in the audience were not yet American citizens, she made the pitch to those there to join her.

“I will work very hard when I become president, if you join with others to help me to become president, to be sure that we immediately begin working for comprehensive immigration reform," she said.

Clinton's appearance comes just one day before a slate of big Tuesday contests that includes Illinois and its 156 pledged delegates. Hispanic and other minority voters have supported her in droves, so her campaign is likely hoping strong turnout among those groups can help deliver a win on Tuesday.
