Attrition through enforcement

Tancredo, Tom
June 2007
Hill;6/19/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 73, p24
The author reflects on the rejection of the so-called compromise immigration legislation by the U.S. Senate. According to the author, President George W. Bush has vowed to intensify his lobbying efforts in the hope that he can round up a few more votes for his amnesty plan. He contends that supporters of the bill dismiss the solutions offered by the opponents, such as attrition-through-enforcement alternative, because their true focus is not to fix the broken immigration system.
