Sen. Bernie Sanders released an immigration plan that would “impose a moratorium on deportations, ‘break up’ existing immigration enforcement agencies, grant full welfare access to illegal immigrants, and welcome a minimum of 50,000 ‘climate migrants’” in the first year of his administration.
According to Sanders, “When I am in the White House, we will stop the hatred towards our immigrant brothers and sisters, end family separation, and locking children up in cages. We will end the ICE raids that are terrorizing our communities, and on my first day as president, I will use my executive power to protect our immigrant communities and reverse every single horrific action implemented by Trump.”

On the first day of his presidency, he would place a moratorium on deportations until there was a full audit of “current and past practices and policies” and end other Trump policies such as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).
His plan also explains that immigration is not a threat to national security – “It is long past time we break up the Department of Homeland Security and refocus its mission on keeping our country safe and responding effectively to emergencies.”
