Public wants Immigration Reform Even if Politicians do not

This editorial from the San Diego Tribune points out an important, often overlooked, aspect of the political debate on immigration: most Americans see this as a national priority, even if our lawmakers do not.

The reasons why they do not are varied, but most seem reluctant to wade into what would obviously be a message political debate. Throw in the anti-immigrant forces who have been known to make this debate about anything but common sense, and it’s understandable why lawmakers avoid the issue.

But this discussion is long overdue. Let’s hope that its time has come.
