Congress is considering an immigration reform plan that would allow illegals to pay a $5,000 fine, leave the country to get a stamp on their visa, and return to the States legally. That’s all well and good for the 12 million to 30 million illegals already here, I suppose. But it does nothing to stop the flow. In fact, immigration without border control will make the problem worse, because it will encourage more illegals to come while lulling us into thinking the problem is solved. In this case, a half-measure is worse than no measure at all.
