President Barack Obama focused his immigration enforcement program on aliens who have been convicted of crimes in the United States, aliens who have been caught near the border after making an illegal entry, and aliens who have returned unlawfully after being deported.

This was eminently sensible, but the way he implemented this policy is another matter.

    We all owe Mr, Rappaport a great debt of gratitude for his incisive and comprehensive articles about the various challenges involved in kicking immigrants out of America or stopping them from getting in.

    This may seem a little out of line, especially in the coming Trump era, but it might also be useful, every now and then, to write about how America can continue to attract and welcome the immigrants who have done so much to make our diverse, multicultural, multilingual, multi-religious nation the greatest country in the world.

    I agree with Roger that legal immigration should be increased to meet the employment needs of American employers and the family unity needs of American citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents. It is unfortunate that the debate over illegal immigration so often covers up those needs.
