We have laws. We need to have leadership that will enforce them. If we can’t enforce them all, at least figure out the important ones we can.
I would think we could agree that if you come here illegally and commit a crime while here, we will deport you. May God grant us the wisdom to see what needs to be seen and to do what needs to be done.
One of the lamest excuses for doing nothing is that we can’t do everything. Such excuses have been repeated endlessly, even by some conservatives, when it comes to illegal immigration.
We can’t deport millions of illegal immigrants already living in the country, some say, so the wise thing is to just learn to live with them, according to the supposedly sophisticated crowd.
This completely sidesteps the plain, obvious and galling fact that we are not deporting those illegal immigrants who are arrested by the police for violating other laws — and are then turned loose back into American society.
