Shouting is Not a Solution to Immigration

Posted on June 11, 2007. Filed under: immigration |

An opinion piece in The Arizona Republic was written by a sensible American. The writer says that shouting is not a solution to immigration.

Some excerpts:

The phrase “illegal immigration” is rarely spoken these days.

It is shouted in anger.

The shouting voices do not speak for a nation that remains conflicted, yet rational, about illegal immigration and illegal immigrants. 

Most Americans understand that our broken immigration system lured illegal workers, and our economy now relies on them. 

To be realistic, a solution has to recognize the need to control the borders, the impracticality of deporting 12 million people, the importance of migrant workers to our economy and this nation’s ideals of fairness and respect for human rights.

Shouting is easier. But this issue demands more than noise pollution.
