Jesse Gordon on Immigration

Editor-in-chief, OnTheIssues.org

 


Protecting DACA and DAPA is a good start

Q: Undocumented workers are reviled by some for political gain and shunted into the shadows. It is time for this disgraceful situation to end. We must pave the way for a swift legislative path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants and protect programs like DACA and DAPA.

A: Agree.

Candidate's position on this issue: DACA and DAPA are a good start. I would support a legislative path to citizenship but I also support executive amnesty as a simpler and faster method.

Supports sanctuary cities, and states, and nations

Q: The inhumane deportation machine must be dismantled by ending deportation programs, closing down private detention centers, offering humane treatment and asylum to victims of violence and minors fleeing from dangerous circumstances.

A: Agree.

Candidate's position on this issue: I support sanctuary cities, sanctuary states, and would prefer to make America a sanctuary nation, as our history supports.
