The Immigration Bill and Other Useless Legislation
Full disclosure: this is the blog of a cynic.
The immigration bill and other legislation of its ilk are not worth the paper they are printed on.
The reason is we have a Federal Government Executive Branch that only enforces the legislation it likes and only the provisions of that legislation it likes.
Congress needs to be creative and craft legislation that contains enforceable penalties for non-enforcement of the legislation.
Without such penalties, Congress is just frittering away its time and posturing for future votes.
