Fact check: Pence’s claim that Clinton has a plan for ‘open borders’

Clinton and Kaine “have a plan for open borders.” 

–Mike Pence 

Pence exaggerates Clinton’s stance on border security and immigration enforcement.

Clinton has said she would expand Obama’s executive actions on immigration, and has advocated comprehensive immigration reform including a pathway to citizenship. But she also has supported enhanced border security. And her immigration proposal includes “humane, targeted and effective” enforcement and focusing immigration resources on detaining and deporting those “who pose a threat to public safety.”
