New Voting Changes are Trying to Restrict Voters

Screen Shot 2016-03-29 at 11.58.47 AM

New voting restrictions have been introduced in 2011 and 2012, discouraging certain demographics for voting, causing fundamentally immoral concerns. The U.S Supreme Court has allowed 16 states, with the longest history of racial discrimination, to change voting requirements or restrictions without the approval of the federal government. This has allowed certain states to introduce restrictions to make it harder to register to vote by reducing early voting, removing names from voter rolls, and by requiring ID’s that had never been needed before. These new restrictions are seen by many as a strategy by the republican side to prevent younger more progressive and diverse people from voting. Instead, encouraging a much older and more conservative population to vote, something that can be denominated as unconstitutional.

Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and their views on immigration reform

In less than eight months we will know who the next President of the United States will be. Maybe Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, or Donald Trump… we are not sure yet, nevertheless, we should consider carefully the position of the candidates on the issue of immigration. It seems that there are significant differences in the positions of each candidate on the issue, especially between Democrats and Republicans. Nevertheless, unlike Trump and his anti-immigration reforms, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders seem to be the candidates that would follow a similar path to that of President Obama.

If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency these will be the issues she will focus on:

  • Pass a comprehensive immigration reform to create a path to citizenship, keep families together, and allow millions of workers to get out of the shadows.
  • End the detention of families and close immigrant detention centers.
  • Defend the executive actions of President Obama to provide relief from deportation for DREAMers (DACA) and parents (DAPA) of Americans and legal residents, and extend these actions to additional people with sympathetic cases if Congress refuses to act.

Similarly, if Bernie Sanders wins, he will try to:

  • Provide a path to citizenship for people from many different countries.
  • Support the path to permanent residency for young undocumented dreamers.
  • Reject the exploitation of workers and the use of visas for cheap foreign labor. Increase opportunities for qualified individuals to take steps towards permanent residency.
  • Secure borders without building a wall.

Both, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, are the candidates leading the Democratic party and their views on immigration reform are too important for our future. We need to continue following their opinions closely in order to understand the possible migratory outcomes after the presidential elections.
