Gillibrand made the comment during a campaign stop in Davenport, Iowa. saying “first, we need comprehensive immigration reform.”
Moreover, “if you are in this country now you must have the right to pay into Social Security, to pay your taxes, to pay into the local school system and to have a pathway to citizenship. That must happen,” said Gillibrand.
While campaigning for President in Iowa, @gillibrandny said she wants to expand social security to cover illegal immigrants.
