Immigration reform 2015 news: Bernie Sanders promises better coverage than Obama executive orderÂ
Another Democratic presidential hopeful has said that he is going to improve the immigration reforms in the country.
First it was Hillary Clinton who said she will further expand Obamaâ€™s executive order and now Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has claimed that he will expand current “Dreamer” deportation protections to the parents of undocumented children.
He made the announcement before Latino policymakers and activists who have been active in immigration reform for years.
Sanders, like other Democratic White House hopefuls, is going to work really hard to attract Latino population. The way everyone seems to be trying to attract this segment of population shows its improved standing in the US over the years. If Republicans will lose the US elections 2016, it may be only because of their vehement opposition to the immigration reform.
Bernie Sanders was speaking at an important Latino gathering. He was addressing the National Conference of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials in Las Vegas. The Vermont senator called for an overhaul to the immigration system that would keep families together. He promised that if elected president he would expand President Barack Obama’s “deferred action” policy, which grants deportation protection for undocumented immigrants brought into the country as children.
In an speech that will make immigration activist happy he said, â€œWe cannot and we should not be talking about sweeping up millions of men, women and children, many of whom have been in this country for yearsâ€¦It makes common sense to me, and I think all people of good will, that we should be pursuing policies that unite families, not tear them apartâ€.
But there is no denying the fact that as of now he is no match for Hillary and will to cover a lot of ground, especially with Latino and minority voters.
Sandersâ€™ comments are going to attract lots of scrutiny in the coming days. â€œAmerican kids who deserve the right to be in the country they know as homeâ€¦We are a nation of immigrants. That is, in fact, the strength of Americaâ€¦It is not acceptable to meâ€¦and I think a growing majority of the American people, that millions of folks in this country are working extremely hard, but they are living in the shadows, and this has got to endâ€¦Brothers and sisters, there is a lot of work to be doneâ€¦But when we stand up to those people on top whose greed has done so much damage to this country… There is no limit to what this great country can accomplishâ€ he said.
