Legal Immigration Presents Security Risks Too
“When Americans think about immigration reform, many probably think of addressing the flow of illegal immigration from Mexico. But the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 and the more recent tragedy in San Bernardino, Calif., show that addressing legal immigration is far more critical to our national security,” says Armand V. Cucciniello III.
Book Claims Employer Sanctions Don’t Work
“Professor Sonia McKay, from the University of West of England (UWE Bristol), and Professor Alice Bloch, a sociologist at The University of Manchester, say that the government fails to recognise that for most migrants there is ‘no going back’ – and that penalties are not enough to stop them seeking and taking on low paid or exploitative work,” says Phys.org.
Tough Wisconsin Bill Would Halt Sanctuary Policies
“The so-called “anti-sanctuary bill” would ban policies preventing public employees or state and local agencies, including law enforcement, from asking someone about their immigration status. It would require public employees to turn people over to federal immigration authorities, even if the person was a victim coming forward to report a crime or help an investigation. The law could even lead teachers, courthouse clerks and city hall workers to report immigrants to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The bill also creates a private right of action for any individual who simply believes an agency is prohibiting the inquiry into or reporting of an individual’s immigration status, up to $5,000 a day,” the Wausa Daily Herald says.
