Where Does Bernie Sanders Stand on Immigration? Campaign Website Does Not Say


Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has drawn large crowds on the campaign trail.  However, Black Lives Matter protesters disrupted an event in Seattle.  Sanders, whose campaign has focused on economic issues, recently added a position statement on racial justice on the campaign website.  On the website, however, Sanders fails to state a position on immigration, immigration enforcement, or immigration reform.  How can that be?  Sanders recently raised concerns in attacking "open borders" as a Koch brothers' conspiracy and stated that immigration might hurt American workers.  Earlier this summer, when questioned about his silence on the issue, Sanders voiced support for immigration reform.

Why is Bernie Sanders so quiet on immigration?  Shouldn't he at least have a brief statement of his position on immigration on his campaign website?
