In the 2016 election, one voter bloc may be more influential than ever before - naturalised citizens. Immigrants to the United States often see the country as a symbol of equality, justice and economic opportunity. And for some, investing in the future of their adopted land is casting a ballot and participating in the democratic process. What matters to millions of naturalised citizens?
In the second half of The Stream’s two-part conversation with immigrants to the United States, we discuss where they stand on some of the key issues of the campaign. What do they want from the next leader, and how do they think he or she will shape the future of the country they now call home?
