MODERATOR: "So, secretary, I have a question for you. In 2003 you said in a radio show that you were adamantly against illegal immigrants and that people have to stop employing illegal immigrants. You your new immigration plan is you’d push for legislation that would include a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. So are you flip-flopping on this issue or are you pandering to Latinos, what some would call 'hispandering?'"
CLINTON: "In 2003, I sponsored the DREAMER Act. I sponsored it I think in every Congress after that. I have been consistent and committed to comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship. I think our best chance was in 2007 when Ted Kennedy led the charge on comprehensive immigration reform. We had Republican support. We had a president willing to sign it. I voted for that bill. Senator Sanders voted against it. Just think, imagine where we would be today if we had achieved comprehensive immigration reform nine years ago. Imagine how much more secure families would be in our country, no longer fearing the deportation of a loved one, no longer fearing that they would be found out. So I am staunchly in favor of comprehensive immigration reform, and have been so over the course of my public career."
