New Clinton voter drive aimed at Latinos

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

Hillary Clinton's campaign is launching a new effort to tap into the political power of young, undocumented immigrants.

She's hoping to capitalize on Donald Trump's promises to deport them.

Clinton's national voter registration program is being launched on the four year anniversary of President Barack Obama's 2012 executive order that temporarily shielded some young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

Organizers will remind voters that a Trump presidency would end that program, according to the campaign. I

t's already at risk after a deadlocked Supreme Court decision in June.

The 730,000 young people known as DREAMERs are prohibited from voting but they've helped mobilize many Latinos who can.

The program is part of an effort by Clinton to woo the record 27.3 million Latinos eligible to vote in 2016.
