That IS the Underlying Problem!

"Now, I often hear the argument that before reform can move forward, we must first secure our borders. But too often, the border-security-first refrain simply serves as an excuse for failing to address the underlying problems," Napolitano told the Senate Judiciary Committee today at a hearing on immigration.
What exactly is the problem if it's not people coming into the country illegally? The only other problem is the government not enforcing immigration laws, or more to the point, selectively enforcing immigration laws. We have immigration policies - follow them. If we are following them and something needs to be adjusted, fine, adjust it. But don't ignore the laws and then say we have to reform immigration. We don't need immigration reform, we need government reform.
