How can you claim the current immigration system is broken when the United States admits over one million legal immigrants every year, more than the rest of the world combined?
Is the Senate bill comprehensive when it fails to address many issues, including top-to-bottom reform of Temporary Protective Status and repeal of the Cuban Adjustment Act?
Is it reform when the bill fails to attack fundamental issues, such as the North American Free Trade Act which decimated the small Mexican farmer sending so many of them north and the National Labor Relations Board, neutered over the last 30 years to the detriment of all American workers?
Yes, change is needed. But, I urge the readers to do a careful study of the bill’s direct and implicit impact on the grand majority of working people. We need better than what is being pushed.
