A Losing Immigration Strategy

You say a two part approach, but it is a three part approach, and you missed the important one; we need to reform immigration law. If we made immigration easier, with things like guest worker permits for lower skilled workers, and revised H1 quotas and policies to attract high shilled workers, workers would not have to come here illegally. I guess there is a fourth and fifth reform too. We need entitlement and tax reform. We need to reward those immigrants who come here and work hard. Those that don't should have less incentive to stay.

All the politicians love the 2-part approach because they can get thier Amnesty now and drop the enforcement later. EXACTLY like they did in 1986!
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...
