Where should immigration reform rank on the nation’s list of priorities?
11/23 at 12:28 PM from California
The public has spoken: NO AMNESTY, no legalization of illegal aliens. We’ve tried it in the past and it doesn’t work. It only results in more illegal immigration.
The only “reform” we need to our immigration is laws is more enforcement, more demand from the feds that state and local jurisdictions help out and end sanctuary policies, and harsher penalties on businesses that violate the law. BUT, no matter the laws, if we have a president who refused to enforce them, it won’t matter much. We’ve had two presidents in a row now who refuse to do their job—and that’s the real problem.
Millions of people have come to the U.S. the right way; that’s all the public asks, and it’s not too much. The U.S. has the most welcoming immigration policy in the world, but the more the amnesty crowd pushes amnesty, the more it’s going to sour the public to immigration as a whole. And then everything will be shut down.
These law professors either need to start supporting the rule of law, or resign. It’s disgraceful to see people in legal positions support what amounts to anarchy.
