Improved Immigration Policy

“Catch and release” programs are going to end, according to Michael Chertoff and the report at Fox.

It looks like we may get some serious action on immigration. At least I hope that is what this is a step towards.

Update: Chris Kelly on The Immigration Blog says the Catch and Release only applies to non-Mexicans. The government says it would be “too expensive” to rid the country of all illegal immigrants, especially the millions from Mexico.

I can understand their point. But we shouldn’t be giving them welfare, Medicaid, or help to buy houses here, regardless of their status. That costs money too.
