With the rising demand for RNs in America, a topic of concern for those considering a move to the U.S. to take a job in the nursing industry. In an election year, there is always a spotlight on the candidates’ immigration platform. We decided to break it down for each Presidential candidate, and what their platform says about their stance on immigration.
The immigration plan for Hillary Clinton’s platform is the most accepting of immigrants who want to come and/or stay in the country. Her plan includes:
1 – Introduce comprehensive immigration reform
2 – End the three- and 10-year bars.
3 – Defend President Obama’s executive actions—known as DACA and DAPA—against partisan attacks.
4 – Do everything possible under the law to protect families.
5 – Enforce immigration laws humanely.
6 – End family detention and close private immigration detention centers.
7 – Expand access to affordable health care to all families.
8 – Promote naturalization.
The immigration plan for Donald Trump is based on three principals:
1. A nation without borders is not a nation. There must be a wall across the southern border.
2. A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced.
3. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation. Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans.
Other key factors include: enhanced penalties for overstaying a visa, mandatory return of all criminal aliens, increase number of ICE officers, make Mexico pay for a wall along the US-Mexico border.
