My own inclination on the illegal immigration issue is that we should move toward regularizing the status of those who are here. But that alone won't solve the problem. We had a broad based amnesty program 20 years ago (I represented a few amnesty applicants; nice people)but then did nothing to control the border.
No immigration reform proposal is serious unless it addresses border security and addresses it in a radical way. Open borders are not a good thing as this column shows. Our border areas should not be subject to this type of lawlessness and social disarray.
