Crossing Jordan on Illegal Immigration

The Washington Post reports on how the Democrats may go slow on certain legislation. One of them is immigration reform. here the article only quotes Josh Bernstein of the National Immigration Law Center, which supports broad-based changes to help illegals.

Bernstein said, A major rewrite of immigration laws "is enormously complicated,"

Enormously complicated, Mr Bernstein?
Not if you look at immigration the way the late Democratic Texas Congresswoman Barbara Jordan did when she said:

"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave." "...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

Let's hope the Democrats will remember those words from this wise black woman from Texas when they tackle the problem of illegal immigration.
