WASHINGTON - KAINE: "Our plan is like Ronald Reagan in 1986."
THE FACTS: Hillary Clinton's immigration plan is certainly similar to a bill signed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986. But Clinton's proposal would offer a path to citizenship for immigrants living in the country illegally and would have far broader impact. The estimated population of immigrants living in the United States illegally is now roughly 11 million. In 1986, the so-called Reagan amnesty bill legalized the immigration status of about 3 million people.
