Clinton calls on White House to stop deportation raids

The Associated Press

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Hillary Clinton is calling on the Obama administration to end raids aimed at deporting Central Americans who entered the United States illegally.

Clinton says the holiday-season roundups were "mass deportations" that are sowing "division and fear." She says she would ensure government lawyers for all unaccompanied minors and increase funding for immigration courts.

Clinton is promising to "do everything possible to provide due process."

She is speaking at a Democratic forum aimed at young and minority voters.

Latino leaders, along with Clinton's primary rivals, have criticized the administration, calling on the president to immediately stop the operations.

The White House says the raids reflected the administration's top priorities for deportation people with criminal convictions and people caught crossing the border illegally.
