Immigration reform has become a hot topic after President Obama delivered his State of the Union address. The Republicans proposed their own plan for immigration reform yesterday. The highlight of their plan is to block undocumented immigrants from getting a special path to citizenship. The plan also calls for undocumented to pay back taxes, pass rigorous background checks lean English and American civics.  The President is now on board for a plan, even if it does not have a special path to citizenship. The Republican plan also calls for securing the boarder before any reform takes place. 
I honestly do not think that these plans will work. The Republican plan ends with the hope that this plan will end illegal immigration. This plan seemed like a Republican attempt to silence their critics. There are several problems with both plans, like the failure to address the need for highly skilled workers. I will be writing several blog entries in the next couple of weeks addressing these shortcomings. Please comment or email me at of you have any questions.
