The Democratic Presidential Candidate Eager to Challenge Trump on Immigration


Happy to share this excellent interview of presidential candidate Julian Castro in The New Yorker.  We so need a president who can lead intelligently on immigration.  I like this answer to a question about what immigration policy should be.

Well, at the core of it is that we should treat people with compassion and not cruelty, and stop treating people like criminals and instead treat border-crossing like we used to, which is a civil violation. Reduce the backlog of people who are waiting for some sort of adjudication in our immigration legal process. You know, somebody deserves a hearing; they get their hearing, whether they’re claiming asylum or they’re here undocumented, and we can make decisions. So people are not waiting years and years in limbo in the United States, that we create a pathway to citizenship for people who are undocumented who are here, the ten to eleven million people, not only Dreamers but also their parents and other undocumented individuals who have not committed a serious crime. Also, that we take a long-term, smart view.

He advocates for significant structural changes, too.  Read on.
