Caitlyn Jenner: Path to citizenship for undocumented; deport "bad ones"

Jenner told Bash that she supports "legal immigration" and that "the bad ones have to leave." But she also said she supports a path to citizenship for 1.75 million undocumented immigrants in the state's labor force, a position that is at odds with core Republican voters nationally.

Caitlyn Jenner: I am pro-border protection & pro-ICE

Q: California has sanctuary cities. Would you eliminate sanctuary status?

JENNER: I would keep it a sanctuary state for small businesses.

Q: Meaning?

JENNER: Meaning, I want small businesses to come into this state. You know, I want people to create wealth here and to employ people, but as far as immigration, no, I am not on that. We need to spend some money to have a fair and equitable immigration system in this state.

Q: If you could, would you continue building the border wall?

JENNER: I am all for the wall. I would secure the wall. We can't have a state -- we can't have a country without a secure wall.

Q: Would you allow the state to work with ICE and enforce the laws?

JENNER: I would do my absolute best to do that. It's not going to be easy. I am for securing this state. I am pro-law enforcement; I am pro-border protection, OK? ICE, pro-ICE. We need these people, and they do a wonderful job.
