2016 US Presidential Candidates Weigh-In on President Obama's Immigration Action

Wendy Feliz - Immigration Impact
go to original
May 18, 2015

Immigration policy has become a hot topic as the 2016 Presidential primary picks up steam. It is no surprise that the issue of Presidential authority over immigration has taken center stage in recent weeks as Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush have all begun discussing their views around how far the President should have gone with respect to executive action on immigration and what they would do if they were President.

Hilary Clinton said to a group in a public event in Las Vegas last week that she would defend the President’s immigration actions and hinted at ways in which she might take them further.

...Marco Rubio would preserve some, but not all of the President’s actions, by removing protections for undocumented parents of U.S. Citizens and permanent residents (DAPA) but keep those in place for recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

...Jeb Bush is harder to pin down. Last week, he said that current legal challenges to DACA and DAPA will end the initiatives. When asked directly by a Fox News anchor if he will bring an end to the program he responded “Absolutely, I would. Of course.” Later when asked how he would undo it, he said by passing meaningful immigration reform. Without further clarification, however, it is hard to be completely sure what he means. How aggressively would he work to undo the President’s actions and does he mean both DACA and DAPA? Or would he leave them intact, if they survive the legal challenges until he could get reform passed?
