Heritage’s Derrick Morgan and David Inserra report on President Obama’s latest unilateral amnesty gambit:
President Barack Obama is considering using prosecutorial discretion to effectively legalize millions of illegal immigrants. Doing so would be unjust and costly and would encourage more illegal immigration. Congress should discourage the Administration from considering this divisive and unproductive step, which would only make it more difficult to implement suitable, feasible, and just immigration reforms and more robust and effective border security.
Last year, Heritage experts compiled their recommendations for a step-by-step reform that fixes our broken immigration system without granting amnesty.
What do you think Congress should do if President Obama goes through with this legalization?
