Immigration reform is a losing platform. It panders to racists and isolationists.

Tighter border security, for what? So that we keep out an extra 2% of the people trying to sneak in?

Tighter border security ends up meaning that citizens and foreign visitors are inconvenienced while scofflaws run roughshod over the entire immigration system. Legalizing the status of foreigners who have overstayed their visa, if they had one in the first place, sends a terrible message to those who are trying to enter the country legally and above board. It says, skip the lines, skip the fees, jump the fence and you'll get your express ticket to residency.

It's a huge sham, perpetrated to gain the votes of a vocal racist bloc. It's disgusting, and is almost as bad as Obama's NSA spying on citizens. It undermines the very basis of the rules which we've set out in the first place.
