Is this the new American immigration policy "Get here by any means necessary"?

Seems to be. And the government for the last 10 years hasn't done much, or anything, to stop it.

Good point, but it has really ramped up in the last decade.

Yes, that is and has been the policy.

Once here the illegals are almost never deported and can pretty much do as they please. They are not prosecuted for felony document fraud, driving without licenses or insurance, they are not required to pay child support, or sign up for the draft which they actually are supposed to do if male and over 18.

The cited article calls this the Obama plan but it's actually the Reagan plan.

At least Reagan went through congress for the 1986 amnesty. He didn't do it all on his own. I have heard that Reagan regretted signing that amnesty later.

Let's hope so. It was a HUGE mistake.
