During a speech on Saturday June 13th in New York City, the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that law abiding immigrants should be offered a path to citizenship, “not second class status.”

Clinton also criticized her Republican counterparts for supporting stricter immigration measures.

“They want to put immigrants who work hard and pay taxes at risk of deportation,” Clinton said.

According to her campaign, the former first lady is willing to go further than President Barack Obama on immigration reform.

Immigration reform

Mrs Clinton said she wants to pass comprehensive immigration reform “once and for all”. Fixing the immigration system is both a family and economic issue, she said.

“[Comprehensive immigration reform] will strengthen families, strengthen our economy and strengthen our country. That’s why we can’t wait any longer… for a path to full and equal citizenship.”

If Congress refuses to act, Mrs Clinton said she would do everything possible under the law to fight for people at risk of deportation from the US.
