By Amanda Becker LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called on Tuesday for undocumented immigrants to be allowed to gain U.S. citizenship, courting Latino voters and drawing a line between herself and Republican rivals for the White House in 2016. "We can’t wait any longer for a path to full and equal citizenship. Now, this is where I differ from everybody on the Republican side," Clinton told a group of students at a high school in Nevada. The Latino vote is likely to be crucial in the 2016 election, especially in potential swing states such as Nevada and Colorado.
