stephanie: back to commitment
5:14 pm
series of questions for the presidential candidates. adam: tonight we ask, what should be done to reform the immigration system, including the millions of illegal immigrants already in the country. john kasich: we should protect the border, make sure that we are in control of our border, have a guest-worker program, so people could come in and go back out. and then for the people that have come in here illegally, if they have not violated the law, they need to pay a penalty. they need to assimilate. but if they have not violated the law, they ought to stay. they are an important part of the fabric of the united states, and i think that' s a plan that could pass both the congress and the scrutiny of the american people. rand paul i think right now we : need to put a pause. and so, i' ve introduced legislation to put a pause on immigration from the middle east, but we also have to be careful about even immigration from europe because there is a large population now in europe, most of the attackers in paris were french citizens. right now, there are no rules restricting them from coming over here.
5:15 pm
immigration until we can know with a 100% certainty, who' s coming in, who' s leaving, how long they are staying, and that they are not overstaying their welcome or overstaying their visa. right now, there are 11 million people in the country illegally. 40% of those people overstayed their visa. if we don' t know where they are, or we don' t seem to care, i think that' s a recipe for disaster and a recipe for another 9/11. so i' m for saying let' s push cause cause. let' s have a moratorium on new immigration until we fix the system. marco rubio: the only way forward on immigration is a three step process. step one must be to enforce our immigration laws to bring control. build walls at key sectors at the border; a mandatory e-verify system; an entry-exit tracking . that represents close to half of the people in this country illegally, who entered legally and overstayed visas. once all of that is in place and we can prove to the american people that illegal immigration is under control, then step two immigration system so that it' s merit based. so that people are brought into
5:16 pm
the basis of what they can do economically, what they can contribute, not whether or not they have a relative living here. only after we have done those two things, can we deal with a third problem, and that is what do you do with millions of people that are here illegally? if you haven' t been here very long or you' re a dangerous criminal, you can' t stay and you' ll be deported or you' ll have to leave. but if you have been here for more than 10 years and are not a danger or not a criminal, you' ll have to pass a background check. you will have to learn english. you will have to pay taxes. you' ll have to start paying taxes and you' ll have to pay a fine. and in return the only thing you will get is a work permit, and that' s all you' re going to have for at least 10 years. rick santorum: i' ve said that we need to limit the number of legal immigrants that come into this country. we bring a one million 50,000 a year that' s again, bringing in lower skilled workers to compete against people with wages are depressed already. i think it' s unfair to american workers. so i want to reduce by 25%, the number of legal immigrants coming into this country.
5:17 pm
primarily competing against low wage workers. and the same thing, you have half of them are here because they are here on a visa overstayed. they came here as a visitor, they came here as a student, they came here as an employment visa, and they did not go home. people always say we' re going to round people up, nobody has to round them up, all you have to do is pick up the phone and call them. we know their names. we know where they live. you probably have their phone number. and just say, you know, it' s time to go home. and go through the legal process of removing them and sending them back to their country. and if they want to come back on another visa, fine, but they are here illegally right now and they need to go home. that' s half the problem. the other half of the problem is a lot easier to solve, to be honest with you. all you have to do is say to businesses, we are going to fine here illegally. stephanie: we' ll hear from more of the candidates in our next half hour. you can read more on where all the candidates stand on these and other issues at wmur.com. announcer: now, meteorologist forecast.
5:18 pm

5:40 pm
northwestern communities. as we get into the overnight hours, clouds will continue to pass through across the state as a weak system will slide through. it will bring in milder air as we get into the start of the workweek. temperatures depending on where the clear skies are longer. we have clear skies and light winds, look at the temperature in berlin. five below. compare that to 16 in salem more 18 in portsmouth because the clouds will be around longer and the winds will be moving in those communities. that will keep temperatures warmer overnight. teens are still chilly. tomorrow, temperatures in the mid-30' s. a few degrees warmer than today. 33 in started with sunshine. bright and sunny in the lakes region. meredith, 31. temperatures in the upper 20' s for bethlehem, lancaster. with sunshine on sunday.

it is already in the 4th amendment, and the proper lawyers have really so stated. the television lawyers turned out to be wrong. i turned out to be right. we are going to have a strong border. we are going to have people come into the country legally. people that are here illegally have to go, and the bad ones, and we have a lot of really bad ones in gangs. if you look at los angeles, if you look at chicago, if you look at baltimore, if you look at some of the toughest gangs in the country, they are composed of illegal immigrants. they are gone immediately. and i want them to go from where they came. i don' t want them to be in our jail so that we have to put them in jail for 45 years and we have to take care of them. i want them out of here, and they will never come back again. jeb bush: we need to secure the border, for sure. we need to deal with the visa overstayers that comprise 40% of illegal immigrants. we need an e-verify system that is serious. we need to end the sanctuary-cities ideas where the local governments defy the federal law. we need to be all-in, coordinating with local law

border and across the country to coordinate an effort to make sure that the rule of law applies. there is national security considerations for this, public health issues. we see the heroin epidemic here in new england because of the cheap heroin that crosses our border. this is a serious undertaking, and it requires a comprehensive strategy. as it relates to the illegal immigrants already here, i have a plan that suggests that people come out from the shadows and they pay a fine, that they work, that they pay their taxes, that they learn english, that they don' t receive federal government assistance. they don' t commit crimes. and over an extended period of time, they earn legal status. they don' t earn a path to citizenship. i think that' s the best approach. dr. ben carson: well, first of all, we have to stop the flow. and yuma county, arizona was very successful in doing that. they put up a double fence with an asphalt road in between so there' s quick access. they actually put border guards
5:44 pm
you can see them. they' re a quarter of a mile apart. and they prosecuted first-time offenders, rather than the catch and release program that we have now. they stopped the flow by 97%. we can make it 100% if we added motion detectors and drones for early detection. that' s easy to do, and they did that in one segment. you can do that in the other nine segments and close that off. you also have to turn off the spigot that dispenses the goodies. if there are no goodies, there wouldn' t be any reason for people to come here. and then with the ones who are here, the 11.5 million, i would give them a six-month opportunity to get registered, assuming that they have a pristine record. if they don' t, they are out of here. and they can register as a guest worker. they have to work in segments where we need guest workers, you know like farming and hospitality industry. chris christie: first, we need to secure our border. how do we do that? well, we should put fencing in the areas that are most heavily populated. second, we need to use drones and stationary cameras in the
5:45 pm
so that we get real-time intel on what' s going on in those remote parts of the border. we can send folks there if we need to, to stop people from coming over across the border. third, we need to put f.b.i., d.e.a., atfh on the border to interdict drugs and guns that are coming across. fourth, we need to have e-verify. every employer in this country should only be able to hire people who are here legally. and if you hire someone who is here illegally, your fine should be double whatever you made off of that person. that will get business in line and tell them to stop hiring illegal folks. and last, let' s have a visa system in this country where if you come in here on a tourist visa or a student visa, you give your thumbprint. it goes into a database and if you overstay -- you are welcomed here under the visa -- if you are here longer than you need to be, we can kick you out because we will have your thumbprint. the fact is that we invite people here for a certain period of time, and 40% of the overstays in this country didn' t come over the southern border. they came in through an airport with a visa. adam: we' ll hear from the candidates on climate change
