The Jackyderm Party seems to have come to aon immigration. From CNN:
While final details were not available, in general, the compromise would require illegal immigrants who have been in the United States between two years and five years to return to their home country briefly, then re-enter as temporary workers. They could then begin a process of seeking citizenship.
Illegal immigrants here longer than five years would not be required to return home; those in the country less than two years would be required to leave without assurances of returning, and take their place in line with others seeking entry papers.
The rest of the article was just “How sweet, they’re getting along!” filler, and apparently the bill leaves issues of border security unaddressed, but this is an important first step to a realistic, dare I say even libertarian, compromise (purists set phasers to stun!). If they continue and reinforce the Mexican border with heavier security but increase the number of legal immigrants allowed in (or, hopefully, end all numerical restrictions altogether), I think we’ll have a successful compromise that increases both liberty and security.
