The Senate's Rotten Deal

The Senate's Rotten Deal
By Rich Lowry

The U.S. has now constructed .286 percent of the 700 miles of fencing on the southern border provided for in 2006's Secure Fence Act. That is sufficient for a bipartisan group of senators to want to effectively declare this brief national experiment with immigration enforcement effectively over.

Enough with the harsh exclusionary measures! Two miles of fencing out of 700 passed by Congress on a border stretching 1,952 miles is a milestone that should mark our departure to the next phase of immigration policy -- a sweeping amnesty of illegals and an increase in legal immigration. Thus, another confirmation of the iron rule of the nation's immigration politics: No matter how discontented the public is with our broken immigration system, the political elite's answer is always higher levels of immigration.
