The media hasn’t been pleased thus far with Hillary Clinton’s press availability, so The New York Times is going the extra mile to get questions answered.
The newspaper’s Amy Chozick wrote Tuesday that the Democratic frontrunner has answered only seven questions since announcing her candidacy on April 12th.
“This is the first installment of a regular First Draft feature in which The Times will publish questions we would have asked Mrs. Clinton had we had the opportunity,” she wrote.
On the heels of Clinton announcing her immigration stance Tuesday, which calls for a path to citizenship and supports the DREAM Act, Chozick published her question.
“President Obama said his executive action on immigration went as far as the law will allow. You say you would go beyond what he did. How could you stretch the law further than the president of your own party and his Justice Department says it can go?” she asked.
Clinton has said she differs from every Republican candidate on the immigration issue: “Make no mistakes: today, not a single Republican candidate, announced or potential, is clearly or consistently supporting a path to citizenship.”
To date, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is the only other Democrat (he is Independent but will run as Democrat) to announce a challenge to Clinton. He’s raised $3 million in four days.
The Clinton campaign didn’t immediately respond to TheWrap‘s request for comment on the Times’ new feature and questioning of its lack of answers.
