Sanders Immigration Plan: Abolish ICE & Create Path to Citizenship

HeadlineNov 08, 2019

Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders unveiled his immigration plan Thursday promising to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE, to push for a path to citizenship, cease deportations and immediately grant legal status to the nearly 2 million immigrants who are eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Sanders said he would accomplish many of these reforms through executive actions. Sanders also vowed to end family separation at the border and allow asylum seekers to remain in the United States while their cases are resolved. He also said he would halt the construction of Trump’s border wall, which has already begun construction in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona.
