Hillary Clinton Supports Immigration Reform

5-important-steps-feed-cover-780x520Hillary Clinton’s perspective on immigration reform is very positive and clear. Republican candidate Donald Trump, on the other hand, displays a negative view and threatens to take away the rights of many immigrants. For the millions of people living in the United States illegally, Trump plans to deport all of them. However, it would be very impractical to deport them all.

“If we claim we are family, then we have to pull together and resolve the outstanding issues around our broken immigration system,” said Clinton. Clinton believes that deportation should be used only on individuals who pose a violent threat to public safety. Immigration reform will help grow the economy and keep families together, which Clinton believes is the right thing to do. She has been committed to the immigrant rights community throughout her career. If elected president, she will work to fix America’s broken immigration system and stay true to its fundamental values. Clinton plans to introduce comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to full and equal citizenship within her first 100 days in office, if elected.

Voting is Critically Important This Election

On November 8th, the United States will face a critical presidential election. It’s a fight between two polarized candidates: the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and the Republican, Donald Trump. This 2016 election is predicted to have the a tremendous impact on the immigrant population as a whole – and particularly on Latinos. With over 27.3 million registered Latino voters, Clinton is hoping to win their votes. To that end, Clinton made a promise to enact immigration reform within the first 100 days of her election, chose Tim Kaine who speaks fluent Spanish as her running mate, and emphasized the anti-immigration views of Donald Trump.

Trump’s offensive rhetoric has disturbed and angered many in the Latino community, even those who identify as Republican. According to a poll by Telemundo, NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, 82% of Latino voters have an unfavorable view of Trump. However, Latino voting rates raise concerns.  Historically fewer Latinos have voted in elections than other minority groups, and in the 2012 presidential race less than half of eligible voters casted a ballot.

We must remember what is at stake. If Latinos and immigrants do not vote, then Trump may win. Trump has shown that he can inspire disgruntled conservative voters to a fever pitch – and they will vote.  Those of us who can vote must vote to prevent unconscionable consequences.

She is asking them to end the “flames of racial division” that Trump incites. Clinton promises that if she is elected during, then during her first 100 days in office she will introduce key immigration legislation. She vows to expand upon the efforts of President Barack Obama’s executive actions with DACA.

Clinton states that she wants a “Clearer immigration system where immigrants with ‘sympathetic cases’ or a history of community service can be eligible for special status.” She also wants to “…eliminate family detention centers, which hold undocumented immigrant families, including children and babies, for weeks or even months in what advocates call prison-like conditions while they wait for legal processing.”

In Clinton’s speech, she reminds the American People that Trump promises to deport 16 million immigrants living in the United States at the cost of around $1 trillion in economic output and fundamental american values. Clinton promises to work for the people, if the Latino community will help her. To read more, see the original article here
