FAIR: Anti-immigration efforts must not detract from interior enforcement

Anti-immigration efforts must not detract from interior enforcement, says FAIRThe Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) has endorsed a new plan to reduce violence along the U.S.-Mexico border but cautioned the policy should not come at the expense of interior surveillance and enforcement.

In recent days, the government announced it will send hundreds of agents and additional high-tech gear, including helicopters, to the border to intercept weapons and drugs fuelling violence on both sides of the border.

In response, FAIR has pointed out that Mexican drug cartels operate in 230 cities across America and therefore without a strong interior enforcement of immigration policies the administration’s strategy is likely to fail.

"[The crisis] cannot be remedied by a strategy that abandons other immigration enforcement efforts, including worksite enforcement, cooperation with state and local police, and the elimination of non-essential benefits and services to people who are in the country illegally," says Dan Stein, president of FAIR.

FAIR was founded in 1979 and is the country’s largest immigration reform group. Its goal is to promote the idea that immigration reform must enhance national security, improve the economy, protect jobs, preserve our environment, and establish a rule of law that is recognized and enforced.
