Professor Emilio Parrado Interviewed on Immigration Reform
SSPF immigration advisory board member, Emilio Parrado, discusses the political inertia that is holding up immigration reform in Congress and its impact. "In this era of concern over budget deficits, we are spending more and more on immigration enforcement, including border security and locking people up for months before we deport them." He concludes that immigration reform has failed because of "a lack of leadership and willingness to take a risk. Good politicians have to accept that some things that are good for the country are not going to be popular with their local constituencies, and do them anyway. But they just don’t seem to be able to find people to do that." The full interview is here.
