The president’s deportation plan traps Clinton between Hispanics and swing-state whites.
As the federal government braces for what could be a record-breaking flood of refugees in Texas and Arizona this spring, Hillary Clinton is having a border crisis of her own.
Last week, a Department of Homeland Security source leaked word to The Washington Post that its agents would soon begin deporting hundreds of immigrant families recently arrived from Central America. President Barack Obama had repeatedly warned the most recent tide of migrants they would face certain deportation, but the news — coming right before Christmas — jolted the Democratic field and prompted a Trump Twitter victory dance.
