Krauthammer: Enforcement & Amnesty

Charles Krauthammer: Election retrospective:

I’ve always been of the “enforcement first” school, with the subsequent promise of legalization. I still think it’s the better policy. But many Hispanics fear that there will be nothing beyond enforcement. So, promise amnesty right up front. Secure the border withguaranteed legalization to follow on the day the four border-state governors affirm that illegal immigration has slowed to a trickle. Imagine Marco Rubioadvancing such a policy on the road to 2016. It would transform the landscape. He’d win the Hispanic vote. Yes, win it. A problem fixable with a single policy initiative is not structural. It is solvable.
