CHICO, Calif. - Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders visited Chico on August 22 and spoke on immigration.

During the Q&A portion of the event, a young woman from Mexico asked the Senator how he planned to address immigration reform.

The senator responded by saying he is proud to be the son of an immigrant and he plans to pass a comprehensive immigration reform that would include a path towards citizenship.

"You do not have mothers traveling 1,500 miles on a very dangerous road with little babies if they could stay home and live without violence and decent wages," said the Senator.

His plan would also give immediate legal status for the 1.8 million youth eligible for DACA and would create a humane asylum process at the border.
