2016 Immigration Policies: Pathway to Citizenship or Deportation Force?

What is immigration?  Immigration is when people move to a foreign country permanently. We have 10 million legal immigrants living in Untied States. Legal immigration is when those who have moved from another country attain visas and work towards becoming a citizen of United Sates. 11.7 millions immigrants are living in the United States illegally. Illegal immigrant is the migration of people across national borders without permission or not telling  destination country.  Today we have 3.3 million Muslims living in the United State.

Hillary Clinton wants both those who are legal and illegal immigrants to have a full path to citizenship. She agreed not to use the term “illegal immigrants,” which many say dehumanizes immigrants who are living in the U.S. without legal documentation. This is what Hillary Clinton said n reference to Muslims, “First, we rely on partners in Muslim countries to fight terrorists. (The immigration ban) would make it harder,”. Clinton has separately called for the U.S. to greatly expand the number of Syrian refugees it accepts, saying that she wants the United States to “lead the world.”

Donald Trump has said he plans to ban all Muslims from the Untied States for the safety of its citizens. In a campaign press release Donald Trump calls for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on. Trump has stated that he will build a wall between Mexico and United states. This is what he said about illegal Mexican  immigrants “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crimes, they’re rapist” . Do you think it’s true? Trump has said he would use a “deportation force” to remove undocumented immigrants from the country.

President Obama has stated in an open response to Donald Trump’s stance on immigration, “Imagine the images on the screens flashed around the world as we were dragging parents away from their children and putting in what, detention centers, and then sending them out.”

Should undocumented “illegal” immigrants have the right to be citizen of US?  Your opinion counts.


More Guns or More Control?

What are your opinions on gun control in America? The United States continues to struggle with mass shootings and gun violence. One of this years most deadly attacks has been the  Fort Myers Orlando shooting.  Today, there is still a debate about gun control law, which determines how guns are sold, used, and who should be allowed to legal use to carry them. This election year, our candidates have opposite opinions and views on how gun control should work in this country.

Donald Trump’s  stance on gun control after the  Orlando shooting he is quoted as saying, “It’s too bad that some of the young people that were killed over the weekend didn’t have guns attach to their hips frankly, where bullets could have flown in the opposite direction.” He’s obviously does not see the need from more gun control.  “If you had more guns, you’d have more protection because the right people would have the guns,” said trump to NBC reporter.  Could having more Americans armed prevent gun violence?

His opposition, Hillary Clinton, wrote about the need more for more gun control stating, “I’ll  take on the gun lobby and fight for Commonsense reforms to keep guns away from terrorist domestic abusers, and other violent criminals.” Do you think it will help?  What is common sense reform?  Will this prevent the “lone gunman” from causing damage to and unsuspecting and unarmed civilians?  And what qualifies a group of terrorist organization when long standing home grown American hate groups continue to thrive?

Trump or Clinton?  Check out these facts.  More than 33,000 Americans  are killed by guns each year.
