Clinton, Hillary - Positions on immigration policy

"I believe strongly we are missing a great opportunity by not welcoming people like you and 11 million others who have made contributions to our country into a legal status so you don't have to worry, you can go to school, you can work, you can pursue your dreams." "I’m a huge supporter of immigration reform and a path to citizenship and will continue to advocate for that." 
After announcing her intention to run for president in April 2015, Sen. Clinton doubled down on President Obama's executive orders and pledged to go even further: “If Congress continues to refuse to act, as president, I would do everything possible under the law to go even further.... There’s much more to do expand and enhance protections for families and communities."  Sen. Clinton also said that Republicans pushing for legal status, but opposing citizenship, for "illegal aliens is 'code for second-class status.'"  Clinton, not only supporting DREAMers, supported their parents as well: Therefore we should put in place a simple, straightforward, and accessible way for parents of DREAMers and others with a history of service and contribution to their communities to make their case and be eligible for the same deferred action as their children." 
Speaking at a Politico panel in June 2015, Sen. Clinton's campaign manager Robby Mook explained how Clinton would expand Pres. Obama's executive amnesties. She "is advocating for going even further than President Obama on immigration, to stop deporting the parents of these DREAMers who are contributing to our economy, and are valuable members of our society. Specifically in the policy that she was proposing, she wanted to make it easier for families to appeal some of these deportation decisions, parents of DREAMers who might be facing deportation." 
In September 2015 Clinton said the answer to Americans losing jobs to illegal aliens is to give illegal aliens work permits."There are people who say with ... real feeling and evidence that they believe that either they or somebody they know lost a job, didn't get a job because an undocumented worker got it," Clinton told supporters in Iowa on Monday. "Of course, but undocumented workers can be paid less and exploited more, which is why disreputable situations arise where people have been mistreated, and sometimes not even paid for their labor at the end of their workday or week…The answer to that, in my view, is to have this path to citizenship, so that the labor market can be regulated, and nobody, American citizen or somebody on the path to citizenship, can be exploited," she said. "Their wages can't be stolen, they can't be mistreated on the job. That is why I believe comprehensive immigration reform would be good for our economy and good for American workers."
