Getting Serious about Illegal Immigration

Lempres, Michael T.
February 1994
National Review;2/21/1994, Vol. 46 Issue 3, p52
The article discusses the problem of illegal immigration in the U.S. and offers ways on how to control the influx of illegal immigrants. It examines some rules and requirements to follow to reduce such illegal migration. One component is the interdiction at the border. It explains that interdiction can be effective because of the nature of the flow of illegal migration. Another measure is interior enforcement. Its principal goal is to deny illegal migrants the jobs and public benefits. Deportation process reform is also needed. To avoid manipulation, the deportation process should be streamlined and the rules should be clarified. Inter-governmental cooperation is also essential.
