These immigration issues need to be debated and compromised on individually. We’ve already spent decades kicking the can down the road. We can take the time to clarify the issues separately. So-called border security is not the major national security issue it’s made out to be. The billions of dollars can be spent much more effectively to addresss the problems causing migration. Dreamers deserve an answer now that recognizes their rights to be fully participating citizens in the only country they’ve ever known. People entering and staying in the country against the law deserve to be treated humanely and as individuals. Families belong together. Immigrants add immensely to our economy, culture and innovation. Americans need to understand we can protect our cities and rural areas by treating newcomers with dignity and respect while still enforcing reasonable laws. The hysteria has to be calmed down.
