Immigration Laws Are Unrealistically Strict

Tamar Jacoby:

Existing immigration policy is a disaster: hypocritical and ineffective.

The law sounds tough. The only problem is it's so tough that it's unrealistic — and as a result, millions of people, immigrants and native-born alike, end up ignoring or subverting it.

Employers who can't find either American workers or the foreign workers they need to keep their businesses running learn not to ask too many questions about whether an employee's ID is fake. Hard-working immigrants are forced to live on the wrong side of the law, on the run and vulnerable to unscrupulous employers.
