“We have a president who is a racist, who is a pathological liar, who thinks he can win by dividing the American people by the color of our skin or where we were born,” Sanders. “We are going to do exactly the opposite. We are going to bring our people together.”
Both Sanders, I-Vt., and Harris, D-Calif., vowed to protect from deportation not only those undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children, but their parents as well.
Referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has shielded those roughly 800,000 undocumented immigrants, Harris said “DACA recipients have parents who deserve a path to protection.” The Trump administration has tried to end the DACA program but has been thwarted by the courts. The administration is currently appealing the rulings.
