Comment: Enforcement First is Enforcement Only

A Washington Examiner columnist asks the hard question to Republicans who have been talking of enforcement first as their immigration policy. What happens when it succeeds?




I posed the "what then" question to a key Republican, one who has thought a lot about immigration. His response was essentially that there are some questions that need not be answered right now, and this is one of them. But the time to answer the question will come. So-called "enforcement first" Republicans will have to grapple with the consequences of enforcement first. What happens when it works?


This is the question that most Republicans do not want to answer, because the "Enforcement First" policy is actually an "Enforcement Only" policy, the "First" being only a fig leaf. The strategy is to simply keep demanding higher and higher standards of enforcement so that issue of immigration benefits does not have to be dealt with. In the April 24th issue of Immigration Daily we pointed out that US has already over performed on all the border security benchmarks set in 2007 Senate Bill S. 1348. The actual performance on enforcement has not even slowed down the "Enforcement First" crowd which keeps chanting the mantra merrily regardless of facts.
