Bernie Switching Lanes?

For John, BLUFBernie has some work to do amongst Hispanics.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Labor leader (UFW) and activist Ms Dolores Huerta talks to the issue of "On Immigration, Bernie Sanders is Not Who He Says He Is."

Here is the kiss of death:

I like Bernie.  He’s a nice guy.  I have no doubt he means well. Latinos matter in this election, and he knows it.  But my question for Bernie is, where the heck was he for the last 25 years? Where was he on immigration reform?  On indefinite detentions?  On vigilante justice against undocumented workers?  He was nowhere.  That’s where.
On the other hand, she likes Ms Clinton:
To put a finer point on it:  Hillary Clinton has realistic plans to pass comprehensive immigration reform and go farther than even President Obama has gone.
So, is Bernie really more a back country conservative that he is a New York City Progressive?

Hat tip to Memeorandum.
