Trump offers to triple Obama’s amnesty number in exchange for tougher security laws
[This objection from Krikorian is why the details and fine print matter: The outline says that no new applications for the visa lottery and the chain-migration categories would be accepted, limiting family immigration to spouses and minor children. Great! But it also provides for the continuation of those categories (and reallocation of the lottery visas) until the admission of all 4 million people on the current chain-migration waiting lists. This is the same gimmick that was in the Hagel-Martinez amnesty bill in 2007 – and the estimate at the time was that it would take 17 years before all those people got their green cards. In other words, legal immigration would not actually be reduced until after President Kamala Harris’s successor took office.]

"Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues,
the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great
intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality of those who seek to change a world which
yields most painfully to change."
          - Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), A Farewell to Arms, 1929
