ABSTRACT
The author ponders who is to make the decision on immigration in the U.S. He says the obvious answer is that the decision should be made in the U.S. and its citizens. However, he argues that the reality is that the decision has been made in Mexico by Mexicans and others who chose to cross the border with impunity. He notes that the combined efforts of the White house and both Houses of the U.S. Congress have failed to turn the immigration fraud into the law of the land.
