2016 U.S. presidential election draws attention on both sides of the border

Immigration into the United States is a strong theme in the 2016 presidential elections, with GOP nominee Donald Trump campaigning to build a border wall and deport more than 11 million illegal immigrants currently living in the United States, and Democratic Party primary candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders both campaigning to expand current president Barrack Obama’s DACA and DAPA amnesty pprograms to grant legal residency status to a majority of the illegal immigrants currently living in the United States. This election, however, has not only brought support and criticism to both parties from U.S. citizens, but also from those living on the other side of the border as well. Deported military veterans living in Tijuana as well as Deported Mothers and DREAMer Moms of Tijuana find hope in one day returning to the United States to see their families through the expansion of amnesty programs.
