The United States of America has a plethora of political parties, however most of politics is dominated by two, the Democrats and the Republicans. However, there are also many other parties available that have their own issues and opinions on what should happen. The Constitution Party has its own solutions for common debatable topics such as gun control, the Affordable Care Act, and immigration policies.

According to their website, “The Constitution Party has always been the only national political party to stand firmly against the proposals for a “Pathway to Citizenship/Comprehensive Immigration Reform/Amnesty” that comes out of Washington.” ( ) They believe that illegal immigration is wrong and that illegal immigrants should be treated as criminals.
