Any reform that doesnt have as a first step the total control of every kind of access to this country - border, airlines, visas, etc. is simply keeping what we now have.
The only change that matters is total control of border and access to the country. Period.
Its worse than that. The laws are already on the books to control the border. Heck the 1986 bill that gave the first amnesty also had a big border control provision.
Its not being enforced. It wasn’t enforced then. It isn’t being enforced now.
A new law won’t change things. The border won’t be enforced—especially not by democrats. And later not by severely weakened republicans.
The only thing that will happen will be that 12-20 million illegals will be granted amnesty.
There has to be some way to have an effective closing of the border. But it first requires honest leaders in the majority.
