I am still learning how to use the I phone and accidentally deleted a comment. I have spent the last three months doing work from areas outside NYC. My perspective on the immigration story has changed. Lost in the story about immigration is criminality. Even immigration advocates need to consider tightening this aspect. Removal of green card status for felony level arrests should be mandatory. Pretending that immigrants are largely law abiding is ignoring reality. Three drunk driving arrests should be automatic deportation. Selling drugs should also be deportable. Alien smuggling of any kind should be deportable. These hearing need to be expedited as well. Ultimately, the tax payer pays for this benign neglect of public safety.
Immigration is predicated on good behavior and is not a sacrament.
