Townhall Tactic 2013: Why do you want to deport my daddy?
by William A. Jacobson
There is a reason why Democrats and supportive groups which want all-out amnesty for everyone are so focused on the issue of family unification.
If it takes just a single person in a family having legal status to avoid deportation of the entire family, amnesty supporters will have found a back-door way to bring in almost everyone on “humanitarian” grounds. Indeed, the Senate Gang of 8 Bill has extensive family reunification provisions.
A fear on the Democratic side is that the position being espoused by Republicans of being sympathetic to the plight of “Dreamers” not only sounds too reasonable to too many people, it deprives Democrats of the sweeping amnesty they want. Dave Weigel writes at Slate.com:
