Could it be that “comprehensive immigration reform” isn’t even needed, because the population of illegals in the United States already has won the fight?
There are experts in the field who suggest President Obama already may have taken action that, essentially, has ended the controversy.
“As distasteful as pardoning lawbreakers is, the problem with amnesty has never been amnesty itself. Rather, it’s the certainty that amnesty will be followed by yet another wave of illegal aliens permitted to settle here owing to elite indifference to immigration law,” wrote Center for Immigration Studies Executive Director Mark Krikorian in a recent editorial.
“The Obama administration and its pro-amnesty allies (including Lindsey Graham, Jeb Bush, Ed Gillespie, Al Cardenas, Grover Norquist, and others) would have us believe that after the amnesty is completed, then the administration will get serious about enforcing the immigration law. Then it will restore immigration partnerships with local law enforcement. Then it will act against foreign countries that don’t take back their citizens. Then it will ferret out immigration-related fraud and identity theft and tax evasion,” he said.
