Two-fold an­swer

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - OPINION -

“Im­mi­gra­tion de­bate of­ten ig­nores la­bor mar­ket re­al­ity” (Our Views, Sept. 10) men­tioned the Bracero Pro­gram, which is what we need to­day. In­stead we have many il­le­gal im­mi­grants com­ing to stay, along with their fam­i­lies. We can­not af­ford this very long. Ex­cess en­ti­tle­ment pro­grams are why many Amer­i­cans won’t take the jobs that the il­le­gals do. The an­swer is twofold: Re­duce en­ti­tle­ments and en­force E-ver­ify. Then, in­stead of re­duc­ing le­gal im­mi­gra­tion, in­crease it. We should be hu­mane but have rea­son­able lim­i­ta­tions at the same time. All it takes on our part is de­ter­mi­na­tion.
