Words: Clinton advocates more patrolling of both the Mexican and Canadian borders. She feels that immigration reform should have family unification as one of its goals. “We ought to come up with a much better entry and exit system so that if we’re going to let people in for the work that otherwise would not be done, let’s have a system that keeps track of them.” She advocates programs to help illegal immigrants already in the country to obtain citizenship.
