Fix ‘leaky’ im­mi­gra­tion now

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - K.J. DOLNEY Columbia, South Carolina

Amer­ica’s elected leg­is­la­tors should be look­ing at our im­mi­gra­tion prob­lem like they would leaky plumb­ing in their homes. Wa­ter dam­age from the leaky pipes will cause rot that will dam­age and even­tu­ally bring down our en­tire struc­ture.

Suc­ces­sive Demo­cratic and Repub­li­can Con­gresses were the “plumbers” who de­signed and in­stalled our “com­pre­hen­sive,” Rube-Gold­berg-ian im­mi­gra­tion sys­tem, and Pres­i­dent Trump is be­ing forced to fix it due to our con­gres­sional con­trac­tor’s de­nial of their cul­pa­bil­ity.

Ask your­self: What would re­spon­si­ble home­own­ers do? Would they just fix the big­gest leak and leave the rest un­til a home­owner’s as­so­ci­a­tion meet­ing could be held to de­velop a “com­pre­hen­sive” re­pair plan? Or would they im­me­di­ately set about mend­ing all the leaks when­ever and wher­ever they found them in or­der to pre­vent fur­ther ru­ina­tion of the in­fra­struc­ture of their prop­erty?

Any plan to stop fur­ther in­cur­sions by il­le­gal in­ter­lop­ers should be grounded in the “KISS” prin­ci­ple (“Keep it sim­ple, stupid”). The first politi­cian to ut­ter the word “com­pre­hen­sive” should be kicked out of the room.
