Hillary Clinton on Thursday is expected to double down on her plan to expand President Obama’s executive actions on immigration as she looks to rally Latino voters against GOP presidential rival Donald Trump.
 
Clinton’s remarks at the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) national convention in Washington, D.C., come after the Supreme Court’s deadlocked decision last month blocking Obama’s actions.
 
{mosads}The Supreme Court’s decision left in place a hold on Obama’s 2014 executive action allowing undocumented immigrants who are parents of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents to stay in the U.S. and apply for work permits.
 
Clinton is expected to reaffirm her commitment to make the program affecting nearly 5 million illegal immigrants a reality while doubling down on her push to expand Obama’s executive actions, according to a Clinton aide. 
 
Clinton will push for a system that shields from deportation those who have shown a history of service to their communities, according to the aide. She’ll also call for a comprehensive immigration reform bill in her first 100 days in office.
