  • The McCain-Kennedy Immigration Reform Bill Falls Short

    July 26, 2005





    Immigration reform is necessary, but it will succeed only if it enhances national security, promotes economic growth, and protects freedom and liberty. The only practical solution is a comprehensive plan that addresses internal enforcement of immigration laws, the origins of illegal migration, and border security. The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act (S. 1033) introduced by Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Edward Kennedy (D-MA) does not achieve these ends.

    Any comprehensive immigration reform program must encourage individuals to use lawful means to enter and reside in the United States. At the same time, it must effectively combat human smuggling, illegal border crossing, the use of falsified or stolen documents, and benefits fraud.

      The McCain/Kennedy bill is worthless. It is basically an amnesty for illegal aliens, and does nothing to tighten enforcement of the immigration laws.

      The Kyle/Cornyn Bill is much better...not perfect, but better. As I understand it, this bill has comprehensive enforcement provisions, both internally and at the border. It also strengthens sanctions and enforcement for employers who employ illegal aliens.

      Furthermore, the Kyle/Cornyn Bill is not an amnesty. It would mandate that illegal aliens who participate in a guest worker program leave America, and apply for their visa in their country of origin. This is as it should be.

      With strict enforcement of employer sanctions, alongside a new more-secure Social Security card, the ability of illegal aliens to function in America would be severely curtailed.

      The Kyle/Cornyn Bill is more in keeping with the views and expectations of the American people, who are sick and tired of the illegal alien invasion.
