I can only shake my head. If we had simply stuck to the laws as written we would not be having this discussion and opening this huge can or worms now. How did this become an issue? Who decided we need to make special immigration laws for certain people?
Is it significant that this occurred during Congressional hiatus?
And consider this – now that we have lowered the requirements for residency what does that say to every one we turned away during the past 10 to 15 years? Do they have the right to sue the United States now for unequal treatment under the law? They sure do.
