Re: "A new tack on illegal workers," Los Angeles Times, March 27, 2009
There’s nothing new about an amnesty followed by strict enforcement of immigration laws. That’s how the original “one-time only” amnesty was sold to the public in 1986.
By now it should be obvious that amnesties don’t discourage illegal immigration – they roll out the welcome mat. If unemployment, border security and overpopulation were not such serious issues, it would be comical that politicians cannot comprehend this.
