Daily Border Bulletin- New Reasons to Focus on Border Checkpoints and a Pathway to Citizenship
Daily Border Bulletin is up! Today's stories include:
Cantu: Focus on legal checkpoints- The principles outlined by a group of bipartisan senators Tuesday make a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s undocumented immigrants contingent upon “securing the border.” Although the specific benchmarks of a secure border remain unknown, legislators would be wise to focus less on traditional conceptions of border enforcement–namely, border patrol agents and fences–and more on legal checkpoints and infrastructure.
Immigration reform: Economically sound- For many on the left side of today’s immigration debate, the inherent justice of offering 11 million undocumented individuals a pathway to citizenship is reason enough for comprehensive immigration reform. However, good economic sense makes another appealing argument for immigration reform that could facilitate bipartisan legislation.
