How Are the Elections Changing the Playing Field - Milwaukee Immigration Lawyers

By Carlos Gamino

The 2016 presidential debates are certainly heating up, and questions about each candidate’s immigration stance have been on many people’s minds. While deciding how you feel about immigration policy is a deeply personal matter, the candidates don’t have that luxury – people want to know what they’re getting into before they vote.

Each candidate has a website, and most outline their stances on immigration very clearly (some aren’t a bit shy about sharing how they feel). You can determine how you feel about the candidates’ positions on immigration by reading their websites, but one thing is for sure: immigration is a polarizing issue no matter which side of the aisle you’re on.

It’s not just the U.S., though. Other countries, including Britain and Australia, have plenty of their own immigration issues during elections, as well.
