Summing Up the Immigration Issue

There really isn't a big issue. There is a mountain made out of a molehill because our politics favors bombast and soundbytes over positive action that actually does what it is supposed to. Here's a vision of immigration from the left:

I think the federal government should do its best to stop illegal immigration. It should do it humanely, it should do it efficiently, it should do it without trampling on civil liberties, and it should do it without mistakenly scooping up lots of citizens and legal immigrants in its net and putting them through hell.

Of course, that's the problem with a "debate" that's two main "solutions" as proposed by the nation's leaders are A) spread as much hate and misinformation as possible, because scared people will vote for you and give you money, and B) use the bullshit present in "A" to avoid having to come up with any real policy.
