Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick argue in their new book that the three broad components of immigration reform – better immigration enforcement, a lawful pathway for future migrants, and the legalization of current unauthorized immigrants – must work together to produce a viable immigration policy. Our immigration law is 60 years old and has been patched over so many times that it is hopelessly complex and contradictory. Recent reform attempts have failed both because of lack of political courage and a refusal to scrap the current system in favor of one that meets our growing immigration needs in the 21st century, they argue. Immigration reform must produce an easily enforceable law that allows the world’s best, brightest, and most industrious a chance to contribute to the American economy.
