California.- During the second debate for the Republican nomination for the presidency of the United States, the candidates insisted that if they came to power they would seek to end birthright citizenship, and emphasized the importance of increasing border security in Mexico.
Ron DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Chris Christie, Doug Burgum and Mike Pence face off in the second debate to seek the Republican nomination. Once again, former President Donald Trump decided not to attend the event.
“If the son of a diplomat in Mexico is not eligible for citizenship, the son of a migrant who arrived illegally is not eligible for it,” Ramaswamy said.
Senator Tim Scott supported this proposal.
Regarding the immigration crisis, Nikki Haley proposed reducing funding for sanctuary cities, increasing the presence of the border patrol and increasing deportations.
Former Vice President Mike Pence also insisted on the need to protect the southern border, but did not answer the question of whether he would work with Congress to provide a permanent solution for DACA recipients.
For his part, Chris Christie took the opportunity to criticize Donald Trump and his work done during his Administration to combat the immigration crisis, and the little progress in the construction of the border wall.
“If Mexico knew Trump was going to build 83 kilometers of border wall, they would probably pay for it themselves,” Chris Christie.
They criticized Biden for the strike
With the request to keep the conversation civil and the topic of the auto strike in Michigan, the democratic exercise began. From his first intervention, Tim Scott criticized President Joe Biden for his presence with the strikers, saying that what the Democratic President should do is to focus on the immigration crisis at the border and the fight against fentanyl .
“Joe Biden is not at the front of the strike, he belongs in the ranks of the unemployed,” attacked former Vice President Mike Pence.
Nikki Haley joined the criticism against the current President, saying that in the first place, the strikers are in that situation because of the spending of the Biden Government.
Former Governor Chris Christie also took the opportunity to attack former President Donald Trump, saying he was hiding behind the walls of his golf club. Ron DeSantis backed this claim and emphasized that the magnate should be in the debate, standing up for his Administration.
