HILLARY: We needed a path to citizenship yesterday.

TRUMP: We needed a big, beautiful wall on the US-Mexico border yesterday.

WHAT ELSE: Immigration reform is something every presidential wannabe has promised for decades. But it’s so politically touchy that nobody can get it done.

THE ISSUE: Many kids aren't getting the education they need. And the ones who get past college have to deal with someone named Sallie Mae.

HILLARY: Common Core is the right direction. And we’ve gotta make college more affordable.

HILLARY: Stay the Obama course.

TRUMP: Time to step up our game and temporarily close our borders to countries with a history of terrorism.

TRUMP: Cut new trade deals to level the playing field. Sign major tax cuts without changing programs like Medicare and Social Security.

WHAT ELSE: The economy’s doing better, but the numbers don’t match how a lot of people are feeling about their paychecks and job choices.
