Is the 2005 Sensenbrenner-King Border Protection, Anti-terrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act a good piece of legislation?

  • Protecting Our Border

    I believe that the 2005 Sensenbrenner-King Border Protection, Anti-terrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act is a good piece of legislation because it is blatantly obvious that we have serious issues with having illegal immigrants crossing our borders all the time, even though it really doesn't make the mainstream media.

    I believe the fence that would target the area with the largest amount of illegal immigrants crossing the border would be somewhat of an deterrent, but especially liked the fact that this would do away with " catch and release" because of lack of intake resources for illegal immigrants.

    I also appreciate that there is stipulation for employers and DHS to report the number of illegal immigrants that have crossed our borders.

  • The legislation was incomplete and left too many immigration issues unresolved.

    The 2005 Sensenbrenner-King Border Act was a incomplete legislation, which is why we continue to have immigration debates to this day. Firstly, many argue it did not do enough to fund border patrols and keep the border between Mexico and the US properly secured. Also, it left in legal limbo the fate of 11 million undocumented workers and failed to address some of the concerns of that community (such as the dreamers -- kids born here in the US while illegal immigrants were here).
