Arthur's story and that of the DREAM Act are just two examples of what amounts to an utterly inconsistent immigration policy. Whether ICE wants to admit it or not, undocumented immigrants are here to stay, and an enforcement-only policy that consists of random deportations just isn't going to cut it.What happened to "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore?"
My history book says immigrants made America prosperous and compassionate. When our country refuses to open the Mexican border or deports Armenian scholars, it makes me wonder, Where did the spirit of America go? Did we deport it, too?
