Immigration Politics: Immigration reform must find balance - Opinion

We agree.

Opinion: Immigration reform must find balance - Thomas Wenski - "A recent White House blueprint for immigration reform says that any mandatory expansion of an e-verify system “must be accompanied by a legalization program that allows undocumented workers to get right by the law.” This language is encouraging. But the president and his administration now must put words into action — by actively opposing immigration enforcement legislation that does not address the underlying problems of our broken immigration system.

Hopefully, presidential leadership, combined with leadership in Congress, would bring both sides together to negotiate a package that balances enforcement with reforms in the legal immigration system. This must include a legalization program for undocumented immigrants."
