Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders visited the Nogales, Ariz., border Saturday and promised that, if elected, he would “take executive action to allow all undocumented people who have been in the United States for at least five years to stay in the country without fear of being deported.” He said that would happen within his first 100 days of office.

Sanders spoke alongside Arizona Rep. Raúl Grijalva, Cook County commissioner Jesús “Chuy” Garcia from Illinois and Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada as he campaigns heading into the Tuesday Arizona primary.

“As I have traveled around this country and talked to immigrant families, and particularly Latino immigrant families, I am struck by the fear and sadness that grips so many of them,” Sanders via a press release.

“Fathers or mothers or both sent out of the country having to leave their minor children with relatives or guardians here in the United States. A U.S. service member whose spouse was deported. A 12-year-old boy who longs to be reunited with his mother. This human suffering has got to end. That is why I am here today.”
