    Most Americans want immigration reform, but the debate is on how to reform the immigration system. This is where the Americans are deeply divided and show dualistic tendencies.
    "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." John Adams on Defense of the boston Massacre

    "Reform" doesn't matter if government will not enforce the laws. Given its track record, government will have a long way to go to prove it can be trusted to enforce whatever laws are enacted on immigration. Since most Americans do not want open borders, any laws will have to restrict immigration. And once you start restricting things, certain constituencies start to feel unhappy (ethnic groups don't get the co-ethnics they want, for example, or businesses don't get all the workers they want to keep costs down), and start pressuring for the laws to not be enforced against THEIR interests. Case in point: an illegal alien mother of 3, a Church layreader, was arrested in an immigration sweep targeting workers in "sensitive" areas. Now, the Church and HER friends say she shouldn't be deported because she's a co-religionist and friend of theirs. Laws which are enforced based on how attractive or well-liked someone is are unjust and unfair.

    The best thing that Ms. Jacoby and other "immigration" advocates could do in the name of true immigration reform is agree that illegal aliens should be arrested, processed, and deported as they are found, and that appeals in the media based on how sympathetic the illegal alien is are counterproductive to equitable treatment under the law. To do otherwise is to admit that there is no serious interest in creating laws which apply to all, and are enforced even handedly. To do otherwise is to admit that there is absolutely no intention on the part of pro-immigrationists of letting ANY illegal alien, ANY time, ANY where in this country be removed...de facto open borders.
