During the PBS Democratic presidential debate in Milwaukee Thursday night, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders said that his objectives include comprehensive immigration reform. 

He explained that he voted against the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 because it included a temporary guest worker program, which he equated to “slavery.”

“In terms of 2007 immigration reform, yup, I did vote against it,” said Sanders. “I voted against it because the Southern Poverty Law Center among other groups said that the guest worker programs that were embedded in this agreement were akin to slavery.”

Southern Poverty Law Center released a report in 2007 comparing guest worker programs to slavery. The non-profit legal advocacy organization advocated that guest worker programs not be expanded under legal efforts for comprehensive immigration reform.

The Vermont senator later added that he plans to use an executive order to give amnesty to the 11 million illegal immigrants currently living on American soil.

"I disagree with [President Obama's] recent deportation policies and I would not support those," said Sanders. "Bottom line is, a path toward citizenship for 11 million undocumented people. If Congress doesn't do the right thing, we use the executive orders of the President."
