Immigration Views of Republican Presidential Nominee Hopefuls

flag-1431943-m.jpg

With the race for the 2016 Presidential Nomination dominating the news and major media sources, the candidates' views on immigration are surfacing. The views on the Republican side range from Jeb Bush's reported support of comprehensive immigration reform to Donald Trump's alleged plan of increased border security and mass deportation. Below are four of the republican nominees frontrunners and a summary of reported views and initiatives the candidates support in regards to immigration.

Jeb Bush

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is one of the leaders in the race for the republican nomination. Reports state that Bush has demonstrated support for "earned legal status" and that he would support moving the undocumented population out of the shadows if they agree to pay a fine, learn English and have a clean criminal record. Back in 2013, Bush was in support of a bill for comprehensive immigration reform and reportedly supported the DREAM Act, a proposed legislation that would grant conditional residency to undocumented immigrants who entered the United States as children. Bush also allegedly has indicated that building a wall at the United States border along with the mass deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants is not feasible or realistic.

Donald Trump

The current frontrunner in the republican race is Donald Trump. Donald Trump has been vocal about his immigration policies and has reportedly stated that he would support building a wall along the United States-Mexico border. Trump allegedly stated that he would attempt to make Mexico pay for this wall along the border. Trump also reportedly stated that he did not support birthright citizenship and he would attempt to deport the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. Trumps also reportedly stated in his immigration plan that he would make it harder for asylum and refugee seekers to stay in the United States.

Scott Walker

Republican potential Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has reportedly stated that it "makes sense" to grant citizenship to undocumented workers who are already present in the country. Other reports suggest that Walker would work to reduce the number of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Some news medias state that Walker had been in support of ending birthright in the past.

Carly Fiorina

Carly Fiorina, a former business executive, is a hopeful for the republican nomination. Reportedly she has indicated that she would support a path to citizenship for undocumented children but not adults. She has reportedly objected to comprehensive immigration reform but would pass bills one at a time in a series aimed at solving the need for new immigration laws. She is also reportedly opposed to amnesty but is in support of the DREAM act.
