National Journal magazine: "Immigration reform is touchy for Republicans specifically, and Americans in general. A Quinnipiac poll from November found that 48 percent of all voters think undocumented immigrants should be allowed to stay in the United States with a path to citizenship--down from 57 percent in 2013--while 35 percent of voters say the immigrants should be required to leave.
"That statistic, combined with a perceived electoral need to reach out to more Latino voters, has put many Republicans vying for the presidency in a sticky spot. The only thing all Republicans seem to be able to agree on is the need to secure the U.S.-Mexico border before considering a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants--though even the definition of border security can vary from person to person.
"Below, you'll find an attempt to cut through the noise and offer a comprehensive guide to what prominent Republicans have said about immigration in the past, and what they're saying now."
