Presidential Debate Fails to Address Diversity in Immigration Issues
mmigration reform in America has been a major issue during the 2016 presidential election, yet the final presidential debate on Wednesday covered no new ground.
Donald Trump reaffirmed his stance on building a border wall and support for the mass deportation of undocumented immigrants, asserting that one of his first acts as president will be to get the “bad hombres” out of the country.
In contrast, Hillary Clinton promised to institute comprehensive immigration reform that would “bring undocumented immigrants out of the shadows” and provide a path to citizenship during her first 100 days in office.
However, neither candidate moved the conversation beyond immigrant law enforcement, again failing to tackle both the intricate complexities and diversity of the issue with further specifics.
