Immigration Reform Unlikely

A number of recent events have further diminished any chance of positive immigration legislation being enacted this year.

Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated by a tea party candidate primarily because of his “pro-immigration” outlook.

People in Texas and California are protesting Central American children who fled their homeland, demanding they not be allowed to remain in the U.S.

The government has increased spending on border patrol agents and immigration judges specifically hired to expeditiously process the removal of “illegal entrants.”

There’s a strong anti-alien feeling sweeping across America. The New York Times on July 15th reported a bipartisan proposal by two Texas senators intended to combat the humanitarian crisis at the nation’s southern border, and make it easier for the government to send immigrant children back to Central America.
