ANALYSIS/OPINION:

America’s elected legislators should be looking at our immigration problem like they would leaky plumbing in their homes. Water damage from the leaky pipes will cause rot that will damage and eventually bring down our entire structure.

Successive Democratic and Republican Congresses were the “plumbers” who designed and installed our “comprehensive,” Rube-Goldberg-ian immigration system, and President Trump is being forced to fix it due to our congressional contractor’s denial of their culpability. Ask yourself: What would responsible homeowners do? Would they just fix the biggest leak and leave the rest until a homeowner’s association meeting could be held to develop a “comprehensive” repair plan? Or would they immediately set about mending all the leaks whenever and wherever they found them in order to prevent further ruination of the infrastructure of their property?

Any plan to stop further incursions by illegal interlopers should be grounded in the “KISS” principle (“Keep it simple, stupid”). The first politician to utter the word “comprehensive” should be kicked out of the room.
