A regular feature, here we track what U.S. presidential candidates have had to say about immigration-related policy in recent days.
- Hillary Clinton is disappointed in the failure to alleviate what she calls the "immigration crisis"; she calls to "repair the broken, unfair bureaucratic system" currently in place.
- Barack Obama said: "This bill was by no means perfect, but even though there were provisions that some of us disagreed with, we should have worked to find common ground on a solution to a problem that isn't going away anytime soon."
- Mitt Romney said in a speech that "[t]he failure of this bill is related to the failure of Washington politicians to connect with the American people."
- Rudy Giuliani released a statement: "The legislation was a hodgepodge at best, and I believe it would have ultimately made our country less secure."
