Heritage homeland security expert David Inserra recently published a report on amnesty, advocating for Congress to clearly enforce the rule of law for illegal immigrants. As millions of immigrants patiently wait for the day that they can live out the American dream, Inserra says, “Amnesty rewards those who have broken the law with citizenship,” which goes against our fundamental principles as a republic. Inserra urges the U.S. government to “apply the laws fairly and equally.” He believes that Congress should “put the needs and interests of American citizens” first.
Senior policy analyst James Jay Carafano published another commentary soon after on President Trump’s successful relationship with Mexico. Carafano notes that the relationship between the U.S. and Mexico are now closer than it was with previous U.S. administrations. A good standing relationship with Mexico helps secure the border, and “the facts speak for themselves,” says Carafano. President Trump focuses his efforts in securing the interests of the American people, which should be reassuring to our fellow Americans.
Heritage stresses the importance of rejecting amnesty proposals, enforcing the border, and recapitalizing the Coast Guard, among many other solutions. Until the federal government prioritizes law-abiding citizens over lawbreakers, those at Heritage will continue to advocate on behalf of U.S. interests.We’re pleased to see President Trump embrace our recommendation to improve cooperation with the Mexican government, and look forward to seeing more of its policies embraced in the near future.
