The City Council wants the presidential candidates to say where they stand on a moratorium on deportations. So what have they said recently?
With the election 27 days away, the issue of immigration has been largely absent from both candidates’ campaigns in recent weeks. An examination of the transcripts of the two presidential debates and the vice presidential debate reveals that the word “immigration” has not been spoken by the candidates from either party.
The topic also has not been discussed much on the campaign trail by the candidates recently, unless they were addressing a Hispanic organization or prompted by a question.
Both campaigns’ Web sites have a section dedicated to the issue of immigration. See the related link to read what they have posted.
