Bernie Sanders sparred with Hillary Clinton on immigration at a debate in Miami Wednesday night, ahead of Florida's primary Tuesday.
With a central part of the debate revolving around immigration policies, the two faced questions in English and Spanish since it was hosted by Univision and The Washington Post. Clinton and Sanders drew a sharp line in the sand on deportation policies, which could haunt them down the road. Both pledged they would not deport children nor undocumented adults without criminal records.
Univision host Jorge Ramos notably pressed Clinton, who in the past took a hard line in calls to deport a surge of migrant children. Asked if her newly compassionate approach toward deportation policies extended toward adults, the former secretary of state appeared to include even immigrants caught entering the U.S. illegally in the past.
"Of the undocumented people living in our country, I do not want to see them deported, I want to see them on a path to citizenship," Clinton said.
