Unlike Michelle Goldberg, writing in the New York Times, I don’t think that enforcing the law is fascism. Quite to the contrary I think that enforcing the law selectively is the hallmark of a police state. We should enforce our laws to the best of our ability to do so. If you don’t like the laws, lobby Congress to change them.
As I have written here ad nauseam I completely support commonsense reform of our immigration laws which, in my opinion, should include significantly more work visas for Mexicans, tough workplace enforcement, and some sort of provision for people brought here a children. Everyone who wants to come here need not be allowed to come here. Not everyone who claims to be an asylum-seeker is actually seeking asylum. Treating every woman with an abusive husband as an asylum-seeker reduces our ability to accept people genuinely seeking and deserving asylum.
