Time For Action

Editor:

I have grown increasingly concerned that comprehensive immigration reform is going to go the way of this past spring’s gun reform legislation. I fear that it will just fade away and drown under the sea of partisan politics.

It’s a shame too, because the House has a real chance to do something. They can modernize a broken system by securing the border and helping those who are here illegally. They can help our farmers and ranchers secure a future workforce under a new, modernized visa system. They can help tech businesses that need smart foreigners to fill highly specialized job roles.

There are plenty of good things in the Senate bill. Is it perfect? No. But it’s a good starting place. It can be improved upon. I think the House needs to realize that this reform is too important to just let it fade away.

Action needs to be done.

How about that action begins with enforcing the laws currently in place regarding immigration? Why in the world would you trust the Feds to enforce new laws, even those regarding "gun control" when they have demonstrated a total failure or lack of interest in enforcing current laws. You do realize of course that there are currently so many "laws" that apply to every American, that even the Library od Congress cannot tell you a specific number. I suggest that it is not more laws that we need, but strict enforcement of and adherence to the current laws. How's that sound Mr. "Fast and Furious" Holder?
