Our 2016 Presidential Voter Guide: The Race to the White House is a good faith compilation of recorded positions the major party candidates have taken on selected issues the Arab American Institute is monitoring. This is not a comprehensive summary of the candidates’ policies. It is a reflection of the most common and clear policies put forward by the candidates that we’ve been able to document during the 2016 campaign.
The issues covered in this voter guide are ones where our community has unique insight. They include: U.S. role in the Middle East; U.S. campaign against ISIL; Syria, Palestine-Israel; civil rights and civil liberties; bigotry; and immigration reform.
