    In an interview/article, you stated that you would like to provide a 6 month period for illegal immigrants to obtain citizenship, accept DACA. Were you speaking of illegals that are currently breaking immigration laws within our country and may have been here for decades or are you speaking in terms of new immigrants entering our nation? What is your stance on DACA?
