"The president has pledged to start pushing his immigration plan in Congress this month. Whatever the details, the outlines are known to everyone — amnesty for most illegal immigrants plus increases in future immigration (in the form of guestworkers or regular immigrants or both), in exchange for promises of future enforcement, such as mandatory E-Verify and the like.
Following up on my piece on the home page today, I’d like to ask conservative supporters of the president’s immigration stance one question: Do they actually believe the Obama administration will enforce the immigration laws once the illegals already here have been legalized? If so, what is your basis for that belief? And if not, how can you support a deal that exchanges amnesty for future promises of enforcement?"
