Joseph Cotto: Preventing amnesty gone wild
After several years on the back burner, talk about comprehensive immigration reform has finally returned. The last time a bipartisan consensus formed on the matter was in the U.S. Senate. Unfortunately, it was centered around a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens. Whether or...

Bishop Michael J. Hoeppner: America must meet this human rights test
Our nation’s immigration system is broken. It is inconsistent, ineffective and does not serve the common good. On this point, people across the political spectrum are in agreement. The question is, what are we going to do about it, especially as thousands of children are coming...

Matt Mackowiak: Immigration reform may wait until 2017
Our immigration system is broken. Few would disagree. The political debate over immigration reform over the past decade has centered on legalization (also called amnesty) versus border security, and both sides are dug in. Liberals believe they cannot achieve their aim of the legalization...

Byron York: Clock ticking, House immigration reform stuck in neutral
Remember the Gang of Seven? It's the House bipartisan immigration reform working group -- used to be the Gang of Eight before Republican Rep. Raul Labrador quit in frustration -- and it has been rumored for months to be on the verge of releasing a comprehensive reform bill. It still...

Doug Patton: Congress need more Steve Kings
First, a disclaimer: I love Steve King. Steve King is a good friend of mine and has been for a decade, ever since I was privileged to work for him during his first term in Congress. That said, I would defend him whether he was a friend or not. My hometown newspaper, the Omaha...

Byron York: Rubio’s immigration strategy worked brilliantly
In the end, immigration reform really was a done deal in the Senate. Debates come down to numbers on Capitol Hill, and the Gang of Eight reform team had the numbers. Needing 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, they started with the Senate’s 54 Democrats and then added the four...

Bryon York: Loopholes put many illegal immigrants on track to citizenship
Members of the Senate’s bipartisan Gang of Eight stress that under their new immigration plan, currently illegal immigrants will have to wait more than a decade before achieving citizenship. Newly legalized immigrants will be given a provisional status and "will have to stay in...

Bob Franken: The right fielders strike out
I think it was a dream: There I was at the Washington Nationals’ Opening Day as they started the season that naturally will end in a World Series victory. As we all know, that isn’t a dream. In the fantasy, though, since it was a home game, which of course means it was in Washington,...
