"Immigration overhaul," "Comprehensive immigration reform," what do they mean? I do not profess to be knowledgeable in all the ins and outs of immigration law, in fact, I know very little about the laws. I know we have immigration laws. I know that, if followed and if enforced, the should work. I know we have laws dealing with illegal immigration. I know that, if followed and if enforced, they should work. I know that we have laws concerning the sovereignty of our nation's boarders, as does every other nation. I know that, if followed and enforced, these laws should work. The issue of immigration and the reformation of the laws detailing the practice, if so important, should have been addressed thirty years ago, twenty years ago, ten years ago. Why now? Why the sudden urgency? Because Arizona has passed a law which, essentially, calls for the enforcement of federal law? That can't be the reason. For years the issue has been ignored, to the peril of this nation as a whole, by both parties. To what end? In my opinion the answer is obvious. Votes. It seems to me this is also the reason for all this talk now about reform. It's not about what is good for the country, it's not about reform, it's about votes. Am I the only one who suspects that "Immigration Overhaul" and Comprehensive Immigration Reform" are simply code for "Amnesty?" Rather than mucking up the laws even more, how about a different approach? Why not try "Comprehensive Enforcement of the Laws Currently on the Books?" Maybe "Comprehensive Enforcement of Our Nation's Boarders?" I am often dumbfounded when I hear people call for new, stronger laws to deal with laws not enforced. This is beginning to look like another instance of this practice. Perhaps my view is simplistic, though I consider it to be common sense. What am I not seeing? I do not oppose legal immigration, I believe it is one elemnet that makes this country great. Why now? Why the urgency? Why not use the laws already on the books?
