Clinton: I Will Go "Beyond Obama" In Defending "Law Abiding" Illegal Immigrants (RealClearPolitics)

At a Democratic party fundraiser in Iowa Saturday night, candidate Hillary Clinton promised she would "use executive action to prevent deportation" and "protect DREAMers." Clinton promised to "go as far as I can, even beyond President Obama" to defend "law-abiding" illegal immigrants.

"I am going to back and support what President Obama has done to protect DREAMers and their families, to use executive action to prevent deportation," Clinton said to applause. "And I have said that if we cannot get comprehensive immigration reform as we need, and as we should, with a real path to citizenship that will actually grow our economy -- then I will go as far as I can, even beyond President Obama, to make sure law-abiding, decent, hard-working people in this country are not ripped away from their families."
