Solving Illegal Immigration

"We can end the political stalemate if we summon the courage to end illegal immigration, provide amnesty at a price, and be more selective about who we welcome into the country."

"As the debate on immigration policy intensifies, Americans are caught in a false choice between tougher border protection and amnesty for illegals. A compromise solution that both parties can rally behind is possible—but only if we have a revolution in the way we discuss our national identity and values. At bottom, we must: 1. Substantially reduce levels of legal immigration and end illegal immigration, while providing amnesty—at a price—to most pre-existing illegal immigrants. 2. Be selective about future immigrants’ country of origin, and terminate multiculturalism as a national value."
