Give DREAMers a break, hardliners a bone with GOP immigration bill. By Nolan Rappaport

Rate this Entry

It has been more than 30 years since the passage of the last comprehensive immigration reform bill, the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA). The main reason for this, probably, is the fact that the Democrats have refused to go along with the Republican demand for effective interior enforcement of our immigration laws.

IRCA was based on an agreement to create a legalization program for undocumented immigrants who already were in the country in return for interior enforcement measures that would prevent a new group of undocumented immigrants from taking the place of the ones being legalized.

The Democrats got a legalization program, but the enforcement measures the Republicans were supposed to get were never fully implemented.

..

Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) has provided the Democrats with a chance to show that they are ready again to accept a bill that includes effective enforcement measures. He has introduced a bill that combines serious enforcement provisions the Republicans want with benefit provisions the Democrats want.

    This all sounds reasonable enough, but would it really fly with a president - whose own legitimacy becomes more questionable as more and more information about the Russian tyrant's interference in America's electoral process becomes available almost with each passing day - and the president's party - which have appointed and appear about to confirm an anti-immigrant fanatic such as Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, with his despicable (let's call a spade a spade here) record of wanting to take America back, not only to the 1924 racial immigration quota law (which. among other things, gave Germany 50,000 immigrant visas a year and India 100 - look it up), but to the darkest time of all - Dred Scott (1857), by abolishing the 14th Amendment's guarantee of birthright citizenship?

    Yes, Sessions has recommended both these things in effect. If Mr. Rappaport is not aware of this, he can read my own recent Immigration Daily comments about Sessions (such as my blogs in the January 4 and January 9 issues) and a continuation of those comments which I will be posting in the near future for more particulars.
