Immigration

"We cannot allow terrorists to intimidate us into abandoning our values and humanitarian obligations. Turning away orphans, applying a religious test, discriminating against Muslims, slamming the door on every single Syrian refugee—that's just not who we are. We are better than that.

Remember, many of these refugees are fleeing the same terrorists who threaten us. It would be a cruel irony indeed if ISIS can force families from their homes and then also prevent them from finding new ones...

America's open, free, tolerant society is described by some as a vulnerability in the struggle against terrorism. But I actually believe it's one of our greatest strengths. It reduces the appeal of radicalism and enhances the richness and resilience of our communities." http://2016election.procon.org/


These people are going through a tough time and these people are threatening us so we should not abandon the innocent people who are living in the same countries and cities as them. This is the right thing to do even though it is a risk because some of the people could be faking and actually be a threat to our country we have to take the risk. We have to take the risk because it clears people from the places we need to get to in order to wipe ISIS out. Innocent people are killed in the cross fire of this war between us and terrorism.

Death Penalty

"This is such a profoundly difficult question and what I have said and what I continue to believe is that the states have proven themselves incapable of carrying out fair trials that give any defendant all the rights that a defendant should have, all the support that the defendant's lawyer should have. And I've said, I would breathe a sigh of relief if either the Supreme Court or the states themselves began to eliminate the death penalty. Where I end up is this, and maybe it's a distinction that's hard to support, but, at this point, given the challenges we face from terrorist activities, primarily in our country that end up under federal jurisdiction, for very limited purposes, I think it [the death penalty] can still be held in reserve for those. And the kind of crimes I'm thinking of are the bombing in Oklahoma City, where an American terrorist blew up the government building, killing, as I recall, 158 Americans, including a number of children who were in the preschool program. The plotters and the people who carried out the attacks on 9/11. But a very limited use of it in cases where there has [sic] been horrific mass killings. That's really the exception that I still am struggling with and would only be in the federal system." http://2016election.procon.org/

What Hillary is saying in this quote is that we should leave the Death Penalty for those who terrorize our country and do terrible things for example if someone goes and shoots a mall or a school. If we can get them we should have them put on the death penalty. This is the right thing to do because they are not spreading peace into their own country. They are killing more than one person and killing innocent children and adults.

Gun Control

"We can have common sense gun reforms that keep weapons out of the hands of criminals and the violently unstable while respecting responsible gun owners... The stakes are too high, the costs are too dear, and I am not and will not be afraid to keep fighting for common sense reforms, and along with you, achieve those on behalf of all who have been lost because of this senseless gun violence in this country." http://2016election.procon.org/
We need gun control laws so we can reduce the chance of something like Sandy Hook happening again. If we make the laws the less of a chance of things like this are going to happen it will be hard to obtain weapons unless you do it illegally. Innocent men, women and children are killed by guns everywhere and need to try to put it to an end by making gun control laws.
