Morning Update: Clinton’’s Hispanic Plan

by campaign2008
March 13, 2008

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) Wednesday released her “Hispanic agenda.” The plan includes a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and says family reunification should be the “core principle” of the immigration system. It also includes legislation to reduce climate change by 80 percent by 2050, noting that “39 percent of Latinos live within 30 miles of a power plant, which puts them at maximum exposure to pollutants, and often Latinos are not aware of advisories about environmental pollutants.”

In a letter to the Senate Armed Services Committee Wednesday, Clinton called for an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the resignation of Admiral William Fallon as Commander of U.S. Central Command. She called Fallon “a voice of reason in an administration which has used inflammatory rhetoric with respect to Iran,” and expressed concern that Fallon’s decision to resign “may not have been his own.”
