Hillary Clinton Speaks at LULAC National Convention (7/14/16)


NBCNews.com:
Just two weeks to the day before she is certain to accept the nomination for president, Hillary Clinton rallied a roomful of supportive Latinos declaring, "You are not intruders."

Clinton, on track to be nominated July 28 at the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia, called on Latinos to "come back twice as strong and twice as clear" against the message of the GOP's presumptive nominee Donald Trump, which she described as "you should be afraid."

"You are not intruders. You are our neighbors, our colleagues, our friends, our families. You make our nation stronger, smarter more creative," Clinton said at the League of United Latin American Citizens conference.

Clinton cited the example of Patrick Zamarripa, the Dallas police officer gunned down last Thursday along with seven other officers, five of whom were killed including Zamrripa. Zamarripa's family had told media he was very proud of his Mexican heritage.

"I want you to know, I see you," said Clinton to cheers. "I hear you and I am with you."
