Why Have Immigration Rules?

Federal regulation places limitations on immigration. What for? Just after all, there are those who advocate the free stream of people throughout borders, enabling unlimited immigration into the United States. This week’s episode of Parsing Immigration Policy addresses the good reasons for immigration guidelines.

Kent Lundgren, a retired profession Border Patrol officer and a member of the Center’s board of administrators, clarifies that immigration regulations exist to shield Us residents and authorized immigrants. Lundgren breaks down the parts to be guarded into four groups: community wellbeing, community protection, national protection, and employment and wages. An enforced border is vital to secure these four necessities of life for those people residing legally in the United States.

“Countries have borders, and unless of course those borders have policies for persons who want to come in and who do occur in, then the border is meaningless and the region dissolves”, said Lundgren.

In his closing commentary, Mark Krikorian, the host of Parsing Immigration Coverage and the Center’s executive director, highlights a report on Biden administration designs to give identification cards to illegal border-crossers who have been released into the United States. Krikorian phone calls this “documenting the undocumented”, and an incremental phase in direction of amnesty for illegal aliens.
