2008 Elections

Dennis Kucinich on Immigration


(Editor's Note: Kucinich dropped his bid for the Democratic nomination on Jan. 25, 2008, changing his focus to run for re-election to his Ohio congressional seat. He did so after having been excluded from televised Democratic debates in Nevada, New Hampshire and South Carolina.)

Immigrants already in the U.S. will be provided with a path toward citizenship. Kucinich believes that the implementation of NAFTA fueled the rush of immigrants and plans to cancel both NAFTA and WTO and return to trade based worker's rights. He voted against the fence in 2006 and believes that strengthening U.S.'s relationship with Mexico and creating a trade agreement with Mexico to ensure that their workers have a "decent" wage is key to national immigration reform.
