Hillary Clinton is making a strong appeal to Nevada Latinos as polls shows she is tied with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
A new ad from the Hillary Clinton campaign features a crying 10-year-old girl being comforted by Clinton, who assures her she’ll do everything she can to keep her parents from getting deported.
“My parents, they have a letter of deportation,” the girl tells Clinton. “I’m scared that they’re going to be deported.”
According to NBC News, the exchange occurred at a Las Vegas campaign event Feb. 14. Clinton calls the girl over and puts her arm around her.
“I’m going to do everything I can so you don’t have to be scared, Clinton tells the girl. “You don’t have to worry about what happens to your mom and dad, or somebody else in your family,” she said. “Let me do the worrying. I’ll do all the worrying, is that a deal? I’ll do the worry. I’ll do everything I can to help, OK?”
The ad is a strong appeal to Nevada’s Latino voters, who represent a significant demographic in the state. Latino voters are projected to make up about 20 percent of the voters in the general election, CNN reports. Real Clear Politics Polling average has Clinton and Sanders essentially tied in the state.
