We need common-sense immigration reform

July 22, 2013 

Victor Hanson's column "Mexico's polemic migration rules" will surely bring out the illegal immigration supporters who will demand that we cater to the status quo, then vilify him and The Modesto Bee for printing what is the truth about Mexico's immigration policy.

We need reform; however let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. We need to have new ideas that allow immigration but not ones that mirrors a draconian system such as Mexico's.
