EDDIE "PIOLIN" SOTELO, host of the popular nationally syndicated Hispanic morning radio show, "El Show de PIOLIN," secured a much-coveted live interview with DEMOCRATIC Presidential candidate and former U.S. Secretary of State HILLARY CLINTON. The interview aired yesterday on the program's 54 station affiliates across the U.S.
The audio link to the 15 minute interview can be found here.
Among the highlights, PIOLIN asked CLINTON how life would have been different for immigrants if she, rather than BARACK OBAMA had been elected President.
CLINTON responded, "What we’ve learned is we have to move on comprehensive immigration reform immediately. And I have said that I will present legislation to the CONGRESS within the first 100 days of my presidency. I will work as hard as we possibly can to make sure that we get consideration and action. I will also be adding to the President’s executive orders to protect DACA and DAPA and I will look for ways to end the raids and the round-ups. I will, you know, be very focused on keeping families together and doing everything I can to make sure that our undocumented neighbors have a path to citizenship. So this is going to be an immediate and focused effort of my presidency."
On a lighter note, PIOLIN wondered if HILLARY's wall on the MEXICAN border "will be as high and beautiful as DONALD TRUMP's?," to which she answered: "I think people should understand that we have invested a lot of money in the last 15 years in border security. The border is, in my view, very secure and we now need to turn to comprehensive immigration reform. We don’t need any more security, including a beautiful new high wall, which is being promoted by Mr. TRUMP."
