Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Boehner's Office Releases Q & A Explaining Standards

Rating: 4 votes, 5.00 average.
Speaker Boehner today released a document providing additional insight in to their recently released GOP standards for immigration reform. The document addresses some of the objections that many in the GOP may have to a reform bill. For starters, it addresses fears that the White House won't carry out enforcement measures. The document states

Unfortunately, the Senate bill would allow this and future administrations to circumvent the Congress and decide unilaterally how to enforce our immigration laws. As part of its step-by-step approach, the House would eliminate the ability for any administration to arbitrarily decide which laws to enforce.

The Speaker also makes the case that the legalization plan is not an "amnesty" given the litany of requirements that must be met and because the legalization program will only progress as specific enforcement triggers are met. The Senate bill would start legalization immediately, by contrast. And the House is apparently going to take a tougher line on gang members than the Senate bill.

    we must ensure now that when immigration reform is enacted, there will be a zero tolerance policy for those who cross the border illegally or overstay their visas in the future.
    Once again, you can't ensure that. No specifics about how you guarantee law will be enforced because there is no way. Just keep saying it about all your tenets--they are ALL subject to being ignored. Zero tolerance? Democrats believe that "being an undocumented immigrant is not a basis for deportation.” Yeah, zero tolerance that immigration law be enforced. Boehner & House standards principles say nothing about how administrative amnesties, "Morton Memos," etc. would be stopped. There has to be a will to enforce and that cannot be controlled.

    Faced with a consistent pattern of administrations of both parties only selectively enforcing our nation's immigration laws, we must enact reform that ensures that a President cannot unilaterally stop immigration enforcement
    If it's so simple, why hasn't anyone ever identified a proposed law which would do that? Wouldn't FAIR (or whoever) be urging its members to write their congresspeople to urge the passing of such a law (even if it were difficult to pass)? If there were a way to legislatively prohibit presidents from not enforcing immigration law, it would be difficult to pass given the influence of lobbyists which on immigration policy is overwhelmingly spent by those who are not pro-enforcement.
