In the next few weeks President Obama will announce some changes to his enforcement of our nations immigration laws. The change will allow millions of people to come out of the shadows and live more normal lives. Like work legally, pay taxes, call the police and take drives tests.
To read the news you would think that the arrival this year of about a hundred thousand unaccompanied minors from Central America is a huge crisis. Calm down, this is not even a small crisis. It is a tiny, one time event, that has been going on for a few years, it is almost over and is not likely to be repeated.
The unintended consequence of signaling, by act and deed, that the immigration laws are not going to be enforced is that there will be more violations of those laws and more negative reaction to those violations.
