Terwilliger III, George J.; Edgar, Timothy
May 2005
Patriot Debates: Experts Debate the USA PATRIOT Act;2005, p113
The article presents views from experts on the efforts by the U.S. to control its borders and immigration to defend the homeland and its inhabitants. According to Timothy Edgar, the greatest flaw in most of the reform proposals pushed under the banner of national security is that they will do nothing to enhance U.S. national security. In response, George J. Terwilliger III argues that immigration is a strong fiber in the fabric of the U.S. society.
