Toward responsible immigration reform

The dead duck amnesty bill wasn't a responsible and workable piece of legislation. Now that its gone, let's get busy on a better one.

Here are some ways to get started.

Key point:

"Congress should try an alternative approach:

(1) Deny amnesty to people here illegally that will help deter future illegal migration and make the point that we insist everyone respect the rule of law.

(2) Enforce workplace laws on the books and gain back control of our southern border.

(3) Create more practical and flexible legal opportunities to come and work in the United States. Together these measures offer a real strategy for breaking America’s addiction to undocumented labor."

This strategy is not only realistic. It is within our grasp."
