Ready for Real Reform

Fred Barnes believes that the immigration issue has turned in the President's favor, and that Americans are willing to support a path to earned citizenship so long as border security is meaningfully reformed.

Fair enough. Let's just make sure that the legislation that emerges doesn't insult our intelligence by imposing measures that make earned citizenship certain, but enhanced border security dubious at best. Again: One way to do that would be to link the number of hitherto-illegal immigrants eligible for citizenship with the percentage decreases in the number of new illegals entering the country . . .

And let's not forget about the other immigration reforms that are sorely needed.
