John Delaney on Immigration

 


Enact the DREAM Act's conditional path to citizenship

John Delaney has a ten-point plan to make us more competitive, improve productivity, and expand the middle class:

Reform our immigration policy to ensure that the same spirit that brought people of all backgrounds to help develop this nation over the past 250 years continues to thrive: We must enact measures like the DREAM Act, which would have provided a conditional path to citizenship for qualified young people who complete a college degree or two years of military service.

Support DREAM Act and more H1B1 visas

Seven Point Plan on Immigration:
  1. Secure our border: We cannot allow people to cross our borders illegally and we should continue funding our border patrol efforts.
  2. Crack down on employers who knowingly hire undocumented immigrants.
  3. I support the DREAM Act to encourage high school students that have grown up here to go to college. But I also support additional H1B1 Employment Visas to allow the foreign students to stay here.
  4. First we need to get undocumented people to register with the government to start the process of citizenship.
  5. Then they need to undergo a criminal background check. If you are a convicted felon you should not be allowed citizenship.
  6. Learning English should be a part of the pathway to citizenship.
  7. And they should pay back taxes. Many undocumented workers already pay taxes, but it is only fair to those that play by the rules that folks who don't should pay their back taxes.

Opposes exiting US to apply for citizenship.

Delaney opposes the PVS survey question on amnesty

Project Vote Smart infers candidate issue stances on key topics by summarizing public speeches and public statements. Congressional candidates are given the opportunity to respond in detail; about 11% did so in the 2012 races.

Project Vote Smart summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: 'Immigration: Do you support requiring illegal immigrants to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?'
