President Barack Obama and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney verbally battled over many topics during the Oct. 16 debate, not the least of which was immigration.
Obama said he was in favor of a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, whereas Romney said he would not grant “amnesty” to people who enter the U.S. without documentation.
Junior psychology and pre-med student Dave Lepoudre said he thinks Romney represents the immigration policy that’s best for the U.S.
“We shouldn’t have people who are illegal immigrants working for us and coming into our country,” he said.
“In a sense, I believe Romney is pro on bringing in legal immigrants,” he said. “I believe Obama just wants immigrants in general.”
Marie Muhammad, a junior who’s co-majoring in environmental science and geology, was also focused on Romney’s stance on immigration.
“I am backing Obama, but I do want to hear what Romney’s saying,” she said. “I don’t want to be biased.”
