It's important that the Obama administration enforce current immigration laws by deporting illegal immigrant minors crossing the border because it will send a message, says David Inserra, researcher for the Heritage Foundation.

"We really need to go and enforce laws more because it sends a message, it sets a precedent," Inserra told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV on Monday.

"Right now, when we're not enforcing our laws, it begets more illegal immigration," he explained. "People down in Central America are hearing the message loud and clear that if you can get here, you'll be allowed to stay.

"That's what we're seeing right now on the border," he added.

"So, by stopping illegal immigration, sending a clear message that it will not be tolerated and you will be deported, that's the most effective way to stop further illegal immigration."

Inserra explained that while states like Arizona have tried to pass their own laws to combat illegal immigration, there's only so much they can do.

"In many cases there's no substitute for federal action," he said. "Only the federal officers can initiate deportation proceedings and can completely bring together all elements of society to protect the border."

The Heritage Foundation Homeland Security expert recommends getting rid of executive orders "like enforcement priorities and deferred action for childhood arrivals."

Inserra also recommends expediting "the removal of these individuals" as something he hopes both Republicans and Democrats can get behind.
