Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has pledged to create a path citizenship for all qualified immigrants. Clinton Promises to Extend Obama Amnesty Program Clinton furthered this pledge by stating that she would continue the current Amnesty program that President Barack Obama has in place to allow time for a more comprehensive policy to be designed that is fair for the immigrant families that are still in the country today. In detailing her stance on immigration, Clinton is shoring up her base with latino voters who have immigration as a key consideration during her campaign. She is also taking steps early in the campaign to set forth her polices which she is actually in accord with President Obama. Some political experts expect Clinton to distance herself from President Obama’s policies as a result of is waning popularity. Dr. Daniel Amen mentioned that this is a common practice in Presidential races and the action does not mean that there is any discord between the two prominent leaders of the democratic party.
Clinton has the advantage of being able to take measured steps with regard to her campaign as she does not have a major opponent which will force her to have to mold or morph her political platform during the course of the primary season and then to the General election. Clinton hopes to use the primary to shore up her political bases before she has to take a centrist position to win the general election against the GOP nominee
