A Losing Immigration Strategy

A president did get the illegals to leave during his term. It was simple in that he enforced the law about employers not hiring illegals. Mexico enforces this and even arrests illegals they find. They also secure their southern border. So as far as I'm concerned those that support illegals and are against border security and e-security on all that are hired, are not for the good of America. I pray that instead of law abiding citizens suffering from illegals breaking the law, stealing their identy and jobs lost to them, that those who support breaking the law are the ones who suffer.
Everyone in Washington is showing new interest in immigration reform. President Barack Obama needs to do something to cement the loyalty of Hispanics, who did so much to re-elect him. Republicans seem to grasp that they had better soften their hard line unless they want to forfeit any hope with Latinos and Asian-Americans.

Both sides also agree that a balanced, two-part approach is in order: stricter enforcement and improved border security on one hand and a pathway to legalization on the other. It's an excellent plan -- except for that first part.

To say we need more enforcement to seal the border is...
