united states. Donald Trump promises a boundary wall against Mexico and the “ideological certification” of immigrants. Hillary Clinton want to see a path to citizenship for the nation’s millions of undocumented immigrants.
Migration issues are hot before the U.S. presidential election on 8 november. In Union City, New Jersey, where 90 percent of residents are hispanic, we have differing opinions on the presidential candidates.
the presidential candidates ‘ proposals for reform stands in stark contrast to each other. Republican Trump represents a hard line, he would also set up a “deporteringsstyrka” and investigate which parts of the world that immigration should be stopped.
Democrat Clinton uses words like “dignity” when she talks about immigration and has promised a comprehensive reform during his first hundred days in the White house. According to recent opinion polls have Clinton in support of about 70 percent among the U.S. hispanic so-called hispanics, while about 19 percent slopes Trump.
On main street in Union City – among ecuadorian restaurants and colombian clothes shops – seems, however, to no one in particular popular.
