American Spectator;Oct2013, Vol. 46 Issue 8, p12
The article offers views on the immigration reform bill being considered in the U.S. Congress in 2013. It criticizes Senator Chuck Schumer's bill for contemplating waiving the border security requirement prior to providing a path to citizenship, and the 10-year waiting period before an immigrant can apply for citizenship. It presents suggestions for a pro-growth immigration policy, such as raising the number of economic immigrants and reducing the size of the family-based immigration intake.
