Congressional Republicans should call Obama’s bluff and insist that any immigration reform be contingent upon our borders being 100 percent secure — permanently. If they get fooled again, as in 1986, they deserve it. Furthermore, as a penalty for being in the country illegally, there should be a period of time that the person should not be allowed to vote. Now this idea was stolen from a powerful, influential member of the media, but I would lower the limitation to 15 years. Republicans: propose this idea to the President and let’s see just how compassionate these democrats really are.
