  • One Step at a Time

    According to an article on The Hill, lobbyists are now targeting smaller immigration bills. This strategy is the smarter approach. The U.S. immigration system touches on practically every aspect of the government, and involves many different competing interests that affect millions of American lives. Fixing immigration in one fell swoop is highly impractical. They tried in 1986 under President Reagan, and two decades later, our immigration problem is worse off. Congress doesn’t need to reinvent the wheel. Instead, as Heritage recommends, they must go about it in an incremental approach. Proper funding and execution of border security and internal enforcement laws already in the books is sufficient. Fixing existing visa programs is equally if not more beneficial than creating new visa programs entirely.
