Former U.S. Attorney General
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow a Path to Citizenship for Undocumented Immigrants?"

“We’ve got to understand that the problem is not immigration, it is illegal immigration. For those who are entitled to be here, we have got to assure that with due process.
