LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Simple fix on immigration: Secure border
Yes, there should be an orderly and fair-minded pathway to legal status, but unless the border can be secured so that America has a chance to breathe and stabilize itself, the only action that should be taken at this time is enforcement of existing law. We do not need yet another massive wave of illegal immigrants.
However, there is a problem with that. We have a president who is anti-Constitution, and therefore, lawless. He does what he wants to do when he wants to do it, regardless of his constitutional limits. He will treat a new immigration law in the same way. So, what we need to do, if there is to be a new immigration law, is to make it absolutely mandatory that the border, in its largest sense, be secured before anything else can happen.
The securing of the border would have to be specifically laid out and actually implemented and verified on completion by a two-thirds vote of both houses of Congress. The rest of the law would also have to be reined in and tightened. For example, chain immigrants should have to get into line with everybody else.
