FAIR's Mehlman: US Policy Should Discourage Illegal Immigration

Monday, 09 Jun 2014 04:45 PM

Ira Mehlman, media director of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, and C. Edmund Wright, columnist for Breitbart.com and the American Thinker, joined Diane Dimond and Dennis Kneale for a panel discussion on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Monday to talk about illegal immigration.

The United States is not going to deport all the illegal immigrants in the country because it simply isn't practical, Mehlman said. Instead, he suggested, America needs policies in place to show immigrants they won't benefit from coming here.

"It has been screwed up for decades, but the Obama administration has taken it to a new level. No other administration in the past actually affirmatively said we are not going to enforce the immigration laws.

"Other administrations simply haven't done it by default. But here you have an administration that is saying, if you get to the United States illegally, so long as you don't go on to commit some kind of serious crime here in the United States, we are going to do nothing to remove you from the United States and as a matter of fact, we are going to work as hard as we can to get you amnesty."
