Pete Ashdown on Immigration

Democratic challenger


Against blanket automatic amnesty

Q: What do you think about illegal immigrants earning citizenship?

A: Oppose: I am against blanket automatic amnesty as what was granted by Reagan in 1986. The legal immigration system needs streamlining and sensible reform, but people who are already trying to go through the legal system should not be bypassed by those who have not.
