Hillary Clinton says she has a 'true solution' to US immigration problems  
 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will announce at a Nevada campaign stop that she supports a full path to citizenship for undocumented workers as part of an overhaul of the US immigration system. [...]
    Clinton is expected to say in her remarks that a "true solution" to the country's immigration problems would include "nothing less than a full and equal path to citizenship," according to an advisory provided by a campaign aide.
     Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, a Republican presidential candidate and son of Cuban immigrants, once supported legislation that included a path to citizenship but now says he believes a wholesale overhaul is impossible and a piecemeal approach should begin with border security.

Here we go again - stuffing the voter box
    ....Essentially, the same tactics were used during President Clinton's re-election in 1996. Only this time the Democrats weren't handing out sandwiches. Instead, through CUSA, they were circumventing normal procedures for naturalizing aliens -- procedures that check backgrounds and weed out criminals -- and consequently they were handing out citizenship papers to questionable characters.
    The possibility of using CUSA apparently occurred to the White House in February 1996, when Henry Cisneros, then Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, forwarded a memo to President Clinton. The memo, from the California Active Citizenship Campaign (ACC), complained of a backlog of alien applications for naturalization in Los Angeles. It contained the magic words: "INS inaction [on the backlog] will deny 300,000 Latinos the right to vote in the 1996 presidential elections [sic] in California."
     The memo outlined the services that the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) in Los Angeles could provide. The IAF offered thousands of volunteers to help process voter applications, register thousands of new voters, conduct 5,000 house meetings, encourage voting by mail, and get more than 50,000 occasional voters out to vote in the presidential election.
