Comment: Kaine Talks of CIR in 100 Days
Fox News Latino reports that Hillary Clinton's vice presidential choice Sen. Tim Kaine gave interviews in Spanish to Univision and Telemundo, the two preeminent Hispanic networks. He promised that if elected Hillary Clinton administration would start working on Comprehensive Immigration Reform in its first 100 days. When asked why Hispanics should trust Democrats given record deportations by Obama administration, Clinton's advocacy of immediate deportation unaccompanied children, and Democratic inaction on CIR, Kaine asserted that Democrats have been fighting every day to reform the immigration system, and brought up anti-immigrant views of his Republican opponent.
