what george w. bush had to say in 2002,. [booing] i didn't believe him. i voted against the war in iraq.

[booing] i have opposed every one of e dithesstrous trade agreements, nafta. normal trade relations with china that have cost us billions of decent-paying jobs. secretary clinton has supported virtually all of them. so we've got some very real differences. this campaign is listening to our brothers and sisters in the latino community. [cheering] what they are telling me is that with 11 million undocumented people in this country, they are tired of living in the shadows, tired of being exploited, tying of living in fear. they want and i want comprehensive immigration reform and a path towards citizenship. [cheering] and if congress does not do its job, i will use all of the executive powers of the presidency in order to make that happen.
