Readers comment on Bob Ray Sanders’ Wednesday column, “A ‘piecemeal’ approach on immigration,” on star-telegram.com.
It’s not immigration that conservatives are against, it’s illegal immigration. How many guest worker programs do we have now? I think if you do a little research you will see that there are several already in place. What highly skilled workers do we need to get additional visas for? Until we have a way to track these visas and enforce the renewal or deportation of same, those jobs should be filled by some of the millions of U.S. citizens currently unemployed. Train them if necessary. Enforcement of our current statutes would go a long way in solving the problems. There is nothing wrong with deploying troops returning from overseas to protect our borders.

They are enforcing them. They are deporting them. And some immigration issues are not just black and white as you might suggest. Lisa Hornsby
From 2005 to 2009, the number of people entering the U.S. illegally declined by nearly 67 percent. Yes, we are enforcing our immigration laws. Phil Palmer
Seems like politicians are more interested in absorbing millions of illegal invaders in order to get votes. No amnesty. Roger Voss
There certainly are those who would give total amnesty today if possible. Right, wrong or indifferent, don’t be fooled that some in Congress wouldn’t do just that if they could. Eric Pierce
