Regarding the immigration compromise ...

Immigration issues are something very close to me. I have both been an immigrant and sponsored many relatives. Thus, my opinions won't be those of the backwoods bigot, but I presume that won't stop someone from characterizing me as such.

My main gripe is that the border remains a joke, drug prices are heading down due to increasing supply and lawlessness is actively encouraged by our political and religious leaders. So if our government couldn't care less about enforcing the existing laws, why should they care about the new one? In fact, the usual culprits will merely take what they like in the new law and discard anything they don't like. Liberty and Lawlessness for all.
