Hillary Clinton spent Saturday afternoon in Brooklyn, New York where she met with voters and spoke at an organizing event. During the event, she was introduced by Representative Nydia Velazquez, then Clinton focused on immigration and issues within the Latino community. She stressed that the United States is a country of immigrants and that immigration reform is necessary to continue that tradition. Clinton also spoke about Puerto Rico and her proposal to give the territory voting rights and federal support for its economy. She asked for everyone’s support in New York’s April 19 primary. A full video of her speech is below.
Clinton also made a surprise stop at an Inner Circle charity event in New York City. Clinton appeared along side New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and she referenced an issue she experienced earlier in the week when she tried to swipe a MetroCard to ride the subway in the Bronx. She said, “Will you just fix these MetroCard slots? It took me like five swipes.” She also thanked the mayor for his endorsement before adding, “it took you long enough.” All Clinton’s comments were made in the spirit of the comedy event presented that evening.
