Altering Immigration Bill Risks Losing Senators’ Votes
A panel of the Judiciary Committee are meeting to talk about the immigration proposal which will include talks about improving border patrol and defining what goals need to be met to allow immigrants to become U.S. citizens. "Republicans will mainly focus on strengthening the bill’s border security goals, which Democrats say can’t be made so stringent that they become unreachable and prevent anyone from becoming a citizen. " Whether you look at it from either political background, it is still impeding liberty in a sense that you are saying, "You can't come here because you have no right to be here".Considering America's history of immigration, this would seem hippo critical. Granted the ability to just open the borders in this time of recovery after the great recession, it would be cumbersome to say the least. But trying to improve security for the borders may not be the way to go, improving background checks of immigrants who want to be citizens is a must though. After the bombing in Boston, clearance into the U.S. or standards must rise. This may be contrary to liberty but for the safety of the public, it may be necessary.
