Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. Biography

45th Vice President of the United States
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow a Path to Citizenship for Undocumented Immigrants?"

“I urge Congress to allow families to remain together in the United States while immigration applications are pending, rather than force them to return to their home country, and to permit qualified long-term migrants who have lived in the United States since 1986 to become lawful permanent residents [legalization] and retain their substantial tie to this country.”

“Al Gore on Our Issues,”, Oct. 26, 2000
