Immigration reform has been a highly debatable topic in this 2016 campaign for election. Immigration reform is meaning to make changes to current immigration policy to our country such as, open borders, amnesty, gaining citizenship, United States economy and the effects this could all have on our country. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are among the top candidates running in this year’s 2016 election. Both candidates have taken a hard stance on this topic. Between the two candidates their views and policies they are pushing for are very different in what they would like to see happen with reforming our immigration system.

b. Donald Trump wants to put a temporary ban on Muslims and terrorist countries from entering inside the US completely. His reasoning for placing a temporary ban is recent terror attacking killing Americans lives. September 11th attack, San Bernardino and most recent Orlando Mass shooting have all been committed by terrorists. Donald will lift the ban once we as a country can perfectly screen who enters into the US. His propositions to do this would be using a biometric tracking system, attaining finger prints and implying facial recognition software. Until we can do this properly the ban will be in place to protect Americans from future terrorist attacks.
