Bill Bradley on Immigration

2000 Democratic Primary Challenger for President


More immigration visas to fill labor needs

Q: Now that we have a shortage of workers, do you think we should open our doors to more immigrants?
A: I think raising the number of visas for talented individuals is important.

Provide amnesty for immigrants who came before ‘82

In 1986 we passed an immigration law. The immigration law provided for amnesty for those who were here before 1982. Unfortunately a lot of the people who were here before 1982 didn’t file for that amnesty. I believe we should have late amnesty for those who had not gotten to it in time because they’re hard-working people that in America today are the backbone of the country in many respects.
