The plan formalizes and builds on proposals O'Rourke has made while campaigning – and in the months before he entered the presidential race when the former Texas congre ssman placed immigration at the center of his political agenda.

If elected, O'Rourke pledged to halt work on the US-Mexico border and requires detention only for people with criminal backgrounds who "represent a danger to our communities. ”He said he would increase immigration court staff and deploy as many as 2,000 lawyers to the border, while hiring and assigning additional US Customs and Border Protection employees to land crossings along the border.

Like other Democrats, O’Rourke said he would work with Congress to enact legislation creating a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants. He said he would make naturalization easier by making the process free for anyone who meets the requirements for citizenship. In addition, he appears to be showing sponsorships.

A native of the border city of El Paso, Texas, O'Rourke has long called on the United States to shift its foreign policy focus to the Western Hemisphere.

It said Wednesday that it would invest $ 5 trillion in Central America – primarily through nongovernmental organizations, community groups, congregations and public-private partnerships – "to fight violence and poverty while bolstering our shared security and prosperity."

"This innovative plan overcomes a generation of inaction to finally rewrite our immigration laws in our own image – reflecting our values, the reality of the border, the best interests of our communities, and the longstanding traditions of a country comprised of families from the world about, "O'Rourke said in a prepared statement.
