Finally, Congress has an opportunity to enact legislation that would effect the most comprehensive — and sound — reform of America’s immigration policies in a generation.

A bill by House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., is called the Securing America’s Future Act. It would authorize: the funding needed for the "wall" on our southern border; 10,000 more agents enforcing our immigration laws; and ending "chain migration" and the "visa lottery" debacles. It would also require the E-Verify system be used by all businesses to deter the hiring of illegal immigrants.

As part of such needed reforms, some so-called DACA individuals — but not others, notably criminal gang members — would be given three-year renewable legal status. Provided the rest of the Goodlatte package is enacted, such an arrangement should not prove to be a magnet for more illegal immigration — something a Senate alternative bill would certainly and unacceptably create.
