Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"The people that came here illegally knowingly -- I don't think they should have a path to citizenship. If you knowingly violated our law, you violated our sovereignty, I think we should normalize your status but we should not give you a pathway to citizenship. "Some people are calling it a blue card or a red card [as opposed to a green card], I think we should treat them with dignity, but we should also be fair to millions of people that are waiting in line, that are trying to do it the right way."
