Loopholes don’t help

Tammy Fox-Isicoff’s examples of immigration fixes in her June 15 Other Views column, President Obama can fix immigration, without Congress, are just loopholes that would allow thousands of otherwise inadmissible immigrants entry into the United States.
Nothing she proposes would help the average resident. They would only benefit immigrant families who want family members to come here whether or not they have the legal right to do so and greedy employers who would rather hire immigrants at lower wages than their native-born workers receive.
We need immigration fixes that don’t involve paths to citizenship, suspended deportations or more loopholes.
Such fixes only serve as magnets for the hundreds of undocumented minors arriving here daily hoping that they, too, will be allowed to stay.
