No “comprehensive immigration reform” doublespeak for them. When the Brits do amnesty, at least they call it what it is.
In the past, ministers feared that an amnesty would act as a magnet for more illegal migration and a spur to international people traffickers…
“It will not solve the problem; it will make it worse. It is an active incentive for people to come here illegally.” David Davis, the shadow home secretary, said: “With our borders so badly protected, even speculating about an amnesty is highly irresponsible. An amnesty could lead to a massive, uncontrolled increase in the numbers coming here.”
Sir Andrew Green, the chairman of Migrationwatch UK said: “This is thoroughly irresponsible. It is not a change of thinking; it is an absence of thinking.”
Back home, the National Guard deployment is paying dividends.
Update: Or is it? Goldstein quotes Mark Krikorian as saying it’s making things worse.
