Clinton to address Latino civil rights group


Hillary Clinton plans to address one of the country's oldest Latino civil rights organizations at its annual convention in Washington next month.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's remarks to the League of United Latin American Citizens, or LULAC, will come just weeks after a Supreme Court ruling blocking President Barack Obama's immigration plans.

The decision Thursday ensures that immigration will remain a central issue in the fall campaign, particularly among Latinos turned off by Republican Donald Trump. He has called for a wall to be built on the U.S.-Mexican border and pledged to throw out all people living in the U.S. illegally.

Clinton called the ruling "unacceptable" on Thursday. She has promised to expand Obama's proposal to shield millions of immigrants in the U.S. illegally from deportation.
