Lenient immigration laws

Would someone tell me how our immigration laws are broken?

The United States has the most generous and lenient immigration laws of any country and, unfortunately, that seems to be the problem.

There is no question that our laws and history of periodic amnesty encourage millions of poor and undereducated people to cross the border knowing that with overwhelming numbers the United States will be forced to again “fix” the laws and grant them amnesty.

In 1986 the United States granted amnesty to 3 million illegals to fix the broken system. Now we have 11 million demanding that they be granted amnesty, along with the accompanying benefits. How many do you think we’ll have in 2030?
