My last immigration post linked to an article about stepped-up enforcement of illegal immigration. Two stories that have come out in the past week underscore the importance of this. The first is an illegal from Peru that killed several college students. He had been arrested twice before and his immigration status was known, yet he was released. The second is a drunk driver in Texas who slammed into a car so hard, the thing burst into flames and killed an entire family.
I don’t care how hard they work, and I don’t care how much businesses think they gain from exploiting these people. None of it is worth stuff like this.
Update #1 - Newt Gingrich goes in-depth on this in his “Winning the Future” column this week.
