Clinton goes after Trump’s immigration proposals in Arizona

Hillary Clinton slammed Donald Trump’s immigration proposals Wednesday evening in Tempe, Arizona, where she repeatedly blasted Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

“He came to Phoenix and reiterated his position about deporting 11 million people, I guess loading them into buses and on trains, including their 4 million children who were born in this country,” Clinton said.

“Just think about what would happen, if he were to win, to women and girls,” she said. “Remember what he said about Carly Fiorina?”

Clinton described the “deportation force” Trump proposed during the primary, arguing it could only be accomplished if Trump authorized law enforcement officials to go “house to house, school to school, business to business.”

“All I ask is that you think about the kind of person he’s shown himself to be,” Clinton added.

The Democratic nominee has spent the final week of the race excoriating her opponent for his most inflammatory comments over the past year.

Even so, she promised Wednesday to provide voters with a choice they could vote for, “not just someone to vote against.”

“There are just six days left in what may be the most important election of our lifetimes,” Clinton said.

She touted the contempt of court charge recently levied against Arpaio for the immigration-related arrests he made in his county, which is close to the Mexican border.

Clinton invited members of the audience at Arizona State University to participate in a “thought exercise” by picturing Trump at inauguration ceremony in January.

“Imagine what it will be like to have him in the Oval Office, making the decisions that affect your lives and your futures,” she said.
