  • October 20 - Immigration Consensus And Mandate

    Comment: Immigration Consensus And Mandate

    There is a broad bipartisan consensus on immigration, evidenced by what was NOT said at yesterday's Presidential debate. Both parties agree that 1) Mandatory e-verify is necessary 2) Family-based immigration of distant family members needs to be reduced 3) Employment-based immigration needs to be increased. The only issue open to active debate and at dispute is what to do with the large undocumented population. The legislative branch is deadlocked on the undocumented issue despite 7 floor votes in the last decade plus; the judicial branch is deadlocked 4-4 as of this year, and the executive branch cannot solve the problem despite President Obama's attempt through DACA. The matter now lies in the hands of the American people.

    The third Presidential debate dealt with this only actively debated issue on immigration and the two candidates laid out their positions clearly--which they have been broadcasting consistently throughout their campaign. Mr. Trump is for the wall and deportation. Ms. Clinton is for a path to citizenship. Both candidates openly asked for a mandate from the people of the United States to implement their contrasting visions on immigration.

    Both Ms. Clinton and Mr. Trump have promised action on immigration within the first 100 days of their administration. Come November 9th, the people would have spoken and one of the two candidates would have a clear mandate to act. We look forward to a Comprehensive Immigration Reform statute from Congress regardless of who wins. If Mr. Trump wins, we will have the consensus above plus deportation with a wall and if Ms. Clinton wins we will have the consensus above plus legalization. A breakthrough on immigration is at hand, finally.
