CHICAGO (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton says immigrants in Chicago “keep this city going.”

The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate was in Chicago Wednesday to promote her new book. In a public discussion with Mayor Rahm Emanuel, she said many immigrants do jobs Americans won’t do.

Clinton was born in Chicago and graduated from high school in suburban Park Ridge.

She and Emanuel have a long history. He was senior adviser to former President Bill Clinton and chief of staff to President Barack Obama while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

But Emanuel razzed Clinton for saying in an earlier interview she and President Clinton were “dead broke” when they left the White House.

Clinton says it “may not have been the most artful way” of saying they had financial ups and downs.
