Six topics were chosen by moderator Chris Wallace for the third and final presidential debate. The 90-minute event will be divided into six 15-minute segments, with both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump speaking on the topics. Here’s where the two candidates stand on immigration, based on their previous statements.
The world’s hot spots
Clinton: In Syria, Clinton has called for the United States to institute a no-fly zone and she has strongly condemned Russia’s actions in the country, saying Russia is more interested in propping up Syrian leader Bashar al Assad than in defeating Islamic State fighters. North Korea’s nuclear provocations have prompted Clinton to urge tougher sanctions. She has not shown a willingness to meet face-to-face with Kim Jong Un.
Trump: Trump has praised Russia’s involvement in Syria, saying Russia is killing Islamic State fighters. Trump wants China to apply more pressure on North Korea and suggested that South Korea and Japan might pursue nuclear weapons as a regional deterrent. He has said he is ready to meet with Kim Jong Un.
