We believe undocumented immigrants should have a path to citizenship if they work and pay taxes, obey our laws and become good citizens.
However, it appears that approach is not going to become law in the forseeable future.
Yet, we must address the problems existing in education, law enforcement and health care because of the millions of illegal immigrants who stay under the radar.
Limited legal status for such individuals could result in nationwide implementation of the E-Verify system to detect illegal job applicants.
Expanding “green card” status now seems to be the most realistic option for beginning to solve this problem.
As a nation of immigrants ourselves, America should do no less.
