Republican candidate for president Mark Everson tells Newsmax that he condemns President Barack Obama's executive actions on immigration, but he supports a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants living in the country.

"But we can't kick down the road this can any longer of immigration reform. It needs to be dealt with now," he said.

"I do support the path to citizenship. Once you choke off that illegal immigration, you are left with 11 [million] or 12 million people here in the country," he explained.

"Fix the legal system so people coming here can contribute economically, and then you seal those borders and you tighten that up, including the visa issuance, and then you put in e-verify," Everson added.

He said that he also supports reinstating the draft.

"We're farming out to a certain category of people the defense of our nation. The rich and the powerful are not participating in the same way," he explained.
