Commonsense approach to illegal immigration neededPodcast
By Ray Hanania
Not being a politician, President Trump probably rushed too quickly to crack down on the nation’s immigration problem.
America has an immigration problem that’s not about losing jobs or even protecting civil right, but rather is about being able to control who enters this country to keep the criminals out.
An estimated 13 million illegal immigrants live in America. President Trump and others estimate about 3 million of them are engaged in crimes, other than being illegal.
A common problem involves illegal immigrants who drive without insurance and get in accidents with other citizens who are left holding the bag. The illegal immigrant can hide and “disappear” leaving the victim dealing with the terrible costs of bad accidents that sometimes involve serious injuries and hospitalization costs. That’s unfair.
