The current crisis on the border presents a “you can’t eat your cake and still have it” scenario for advocates who just want a process to deal with the millions of undocumented immigrants here. Such advocates should not expect a process to address that issue without expecting that there should be concrete measures to deter and establish consequences to newcomers who want to violate U.S. immigration laws, such as entering the U.S. illegally.
Ironically, the Obama immigration boomerang presents a situation for those advocates and his supporters who want immigration reform to address the status of undocumented immigrants.
That is, to faster deal with that issue it will be wise to actually support the Republican position of border security first.
