Effective Immigration Reform Must Be Comprehensive

An impressive group of 33 conservatives signed an open letter arguing that the United States needs to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill:

Conservatives have always prided themselves on acknowledging, in the words of John Adams, that "Facts are stubborn things." Well, immigration--both the robust annual flow required to keep our economy growing and the 12 million illegal immigrants already in the country--is a fact of life in the U.S. today. And the only practical way to deal with these stubborn realities is with a comprehensive solution, one that includes border security, interior enforcement, a guest worker program and status for the illegal immigrants already here.

See the entire letter and the names of the signatories here.
