US presidential election: what candidates promise immigrants
A little more than a week remains before the US presidential election. In many states, pre-voting is in full swing. Immigration is one of the main stumbling blocks in this pre-election season, and for our readers it is also an important issue. Therefore, we decided to collect the main applicants' statements regarding immigration policy.
In general terms, the current head of state, Donald Trump, intends to continue to follow the course that he set during his presidency. In addition to further prosecution of illegal immigrants, it includes:
- building a wall on the border with Mexico;
- tightening the US asylum process;
- the ban on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program that protects against deportation of illegal immigrants brought to the United States by children);
- introduction of a merit-based immigration system.
The agenda of Democratic candidate Joe Biden is mainly about bringing immigration policy back to the state it was in under Barack Obama.
To do this, he intends:
- support DACA in every possible way;
- develop a policy for obtaining citizenship by some illegal immigrants;
- refrain from building a wall on the southern border of the United States;
- to allocate money to Latin American countries to solve their problems, leading to active migration of residents to the United States.
