Bernie Sanders on Immigration Reform and Other Concerns to the Latino Community

The Hillary Clinton Campaign is using Julian Castro to attack Bernie Sanders for not reaching out enough to the Latino Community.  This erroneous charge has been rebutted by the Sanders Campaign and reported about by Bob Cervantes in an article entitled, Castro Slaps at Bernie With An Error.

Castro, who is on the short list for Clinton's Vice President, had an agenda. According to Cervantes,

He meant to put distance between Clinton, the Democratic front runner, and Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator whose insurgent campaign has prompted not-so-secret fears among Clinton loyalists. 
Castro, presumably, has seen recent polling that shows Sanders closing in on Clinton in early primary states, such as Monday's Des Moines Register/Bloomberg poll that puts Sanders just seven points behind Clinton among Hawkeye State caucus-goers. As NBC News noted, that means Sanders -- after his whirlwind tour through the country this summer -- effectively has doubled his share of support from a May survey.

I agree with Cervantes assessment.  If you ask me, the Clinton Campaign is about to turn negative and use subtle innuendo, distortions and lies as the Campaign did in 2007/8 against Obama. While Sanders seems committed to not playing these games,  it is not beyond the Clinton Campaign.

Still all this got me to wonder where Sanders stands on issues of concern to the Latino Community.  I went to the great resource, FeeltheBern.Org to find out. Bernie supports immigration reform and a clear path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, is dedicated to combating racism, and will fight for economic policies that affect poor and middle class people of all skin colors.

Does he have more reaching out to do.  I am certain he does! But people, keep in mind his campaign is still less than four months old. And he has been reaching out to the Latino Communities.

On July 13, 2015 he spoke to the National Council of La Raza in Kansas City and spoke about racism, immigration reform and his economic policies.  His speech was described as riveting and reportedly received greater audience response than that of Hillary Clinton's

In case, you didn't see it, here is the video of Bernie Sanders Speech for the National Council of La Raza in Kansas City on July 13, 2015.
