Clinton's Immigration (section page):

  • Hillary has shown longstanding, steadfast commitment to America’s immigrants throughout her career. As president, she will work to ensure a fair and just immigration system.(HC)
  • As president, Hillary will:
    • Fight for comprehensive immigration reform legislation with a path to full and equal citizenship. (HC)
    • Defend President Obama’s DACA and DAPA executive actions. (HC)
    • Do everything possible under the law to go further to protect families. If Congress continues its refusal to act on comprehensive immigration reform, Hillary will put in place a simple, straightforward, accessible system for parents of DREAMers and others with a history of service and contribution to their communities to be able to make their case and be eligible for deferred action as well. (HC)
    • Conduct humane, targeted immigration enforcement. Hillary will focus enforcement resources on detaining and deporting those individuals who pose a violent threat to public safety, and work to ensure refugees who seek asylum in the U.S. have a fair chance to tell their stories. (HC)
      • End family detention. Hillary believes we should end family detention for parents and children who arrive at our border in desperate situations. We have alternatives to detention for those who pose no flight or public safety risk, such as supervised release, that have proved effective and cost a fraction of what it takes to keep families in detention. (HC)
      • Close private immigrant detention centers. Hillary will end private immigrant detention centers. She believes we should move away from contracting out this critical government function to private corporations and private industry incentives that may contribute—or have the appearance of contributing—to over-incarceration. (HC)
    • Expand access to affordable healthcare to all families. Hillary sponsored the Immigrant Children’s Health Improvement Act in the Senate, which later became law and allows immigrant children and pregnant women to obtain Medicaid and SCHIP. (HC)
    • Promote naturalization. (HC)

"I will stand up against any effort to deport dreamers. Immigrants are vital to our economy." (kens5)
