Comparison Of Donald Trump And Hillary Clinton On Immigration

Immigration has recently become the center of the presidential debates, and every candidate is trying to offer up the best position regarding this topic. For instance, the democrats maintain a low profile on their stance because many, such as Hillary Clinton, believe immigration is be something we should allow more of. While the republicans, excluding Jeb Bush, strongly support the strengthening of our immigration laws. That being said, Donald Trump’s stance on immigration is the most popular amongst Republican Americans. This is because he promises to build a wall large enough that there would be no chance of illegal immigration. Today I would like to discuss Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s stance on immigration, what I personally think …show more content…
She is basically the only reasonable major candidate that may have a chance to become president. Her stance on immigration is very lenient; she wants what is best for everyone and has even stated that “she would like to see immigrants have a path to citizenship” (Fact check). Unlike other candidates, she possesses the rare ability to see the good in everyone, especially the Hispanic travelers from our neighbor country Mexico. Hilary has even gone in front of a group of Hispanics stating, "Latinos make America stronger. You make America smarter. You make America more creative and innovative” (Immigration group 's protester). She believes immigrants, more commonly Hispanics, are improving our society rather than destroying it. Her stance on the term “anchor baby” is also a reason I find her to be more humane than the republican candidates. Donald Trump will often use the term “anchor baby” to refer to foreigners coming here and having children to obtain citizenship.

We need to strengthen our borders, but only deport those that cause harm and are known to be involved with gangs, or drug activities, regardless of race. There are plenty of hard working people from foreign lands that have come to our country, and it would be a monumental burden on our economy to deport those hardworking people who are here for a better life. I personally have known illegal immigrants who put forth more effort and had been more grateful for the opportunities in America than most Native-born Americans who take their opportunities for granted. Immigration is not a bad thing. The America we live in is known for cultural diversity and acceptance. In turn, if we were to completely shut our borders off to immigrants it would actually put a handicap on the growth of our creative and diverse society. We must open our hearts and realize, we too were once immigrants. We must also understand that not every person from another country has come here to steal our jobs and commit crimes, but to help create more of those jobs and live in a peaceful
