Where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton stand on immigration reform

Both presidential candidates want to secure borders but are at odds on every other aspect of immigration reform.

Where Trump stands:

-Wants to build a wall along the Southern border and have Mexico pay for it,

-Doesn't support citizenship path for undocumented

-In December 2015, Trump proposed a national ban on all Muslims entering the United States.

In Trump's own words...
"We don't have a country if we don't have borders. We will build a wall. It will be a great wall it will do what it's supposed to do, keep illegal immigrants out. Now with that said, we're going to have a big beautiful door in the middle of that wall and people are going to come into our country, and they're going to come in legally."

Trump has recently gone from calling for mass deportations for millions to arguing deportations should focus on those who commit crimes.

He has also altered his call for a Muslim ban to bar "any nation that has been compromised by terrorism" from entering the United States.

Where Clinton stands:

-Supports comprehensive immigration reform, including a pathway to citizenship

-Wants to avoid deportations that would break up families and enable "millions of workers to come out of the shadows

-plans to support and defends Obama's executive actions to provide deportation relief for DREAMers

In Clinton's own words...
"We are in a global competition , and I'm not about to let anybody who can help make a contribution to our economy and our society get thrown away. So my perspective, we need to fix that. We need to remove the fear. And we need to make sure that we give every child the chance to do the best he or she can."
