Las guerras inmigratorias

by Clint Bolick Jeb Bush

Del antiguo gobernador republicano de Florida y uno de los litigantes constitucionales principales llega una mirada oportuna y provocativa de uno de los temas más divisivos que enfrenta la nación hoy en día: la inmigración. No hay un tema de política pública que divida más estridentemente a los americanos que la inmigración. Los argumentos principales han permanecido constantes durante más de dos siglos, sin llegar nunca a un común acuerdo. Ahora, en Las guerras inmigratorias, Jeb Bush y uno de los litigantes constitucionales principales, Clint Bolick, presentan una solución integral basada en dos principios centrales: la inmigración es esencial para el futuro de Estados Unidos, alimentando su crecimiento, vitalidad y creatividad; pero cualquier solución perdurable debe seguir las leyes de Estados Unidos. Somos, claramente, una nación de inmigrantes. Más que cualquier otro país, nuestra identidad nacional se basa en un conjunto de ideales que son enriquecidos y revigorizados por los inmigrantes, la mayoría de los cuales se adhieren más fervorosamente a los valores estadounidenses. Sin embargo, a través de las décadas pasadas, un gran porcentaje de inmigrantes ha entrado y permanecido en el país ilegalmente. Para eficazmente abordar este problema, primero debemos revisar nuestro proceso inmigratorio gravemente quebrantado. Una obra importante y necesaria, Las guerras inmigratorias ofrece una mirada compasiva acerca de la inmigración y las medidas realistas para reformar la política --sin la retórica divisiva--y una guía para el futuro de nuestro país.

Immigration Wars

by Jeb Bush Clint Bolick

The immigration debate has challenged our nation since its founding. But today, it divides Americans more stridently than ever, due to a chronic failure of national leadership by both parties. Here at last is an attainable resolution guided by two core principles: first, immigration is vital to America's future; second, any enduring resolution must adhere to the rule of law. Unfortunately, current laws are so cumbersome and irrational that millions have circumvented them and entered the United States illegally, taxing our system to the breaking point. Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick contend there are other unique factors currently at play: America's future population expansion will come solely from immigrants. And for the first time, the U.S. must compete with other countries for immigrant workers and their skills. In the first book to offer a practical, nonpartisan approach, Bush and Bolick propose a compelling six-point strategy for reworking our policies that begins with erasing all existing, outdated immigration structures and starting over. From there, Immigration Wars details their plan for advancing the national goals that immigration policy is supposed to achieve: build a demand-driven immigration system; increase states' autonomy based on varying needs; reduce the significant physical risks and financial costs imposed by illegal immigration; unite Mexico and America in their common war against drug cartels; and educate aspiring citizens in our nation's founding principles and why they still matter. Here too is a viable variation of the DREAM Act as a legal status for children brought here illegally, and sound strategies for the Republican Party to revitalize their ever-decreasing core constituency. With Immigration Wars as a beacon of hope, Americans can finally solidify a national identity that is based on a set of ideals enriched and reinvigorated by immigrants, most of whom fervently embrace our core values--family, faith, hard work, education, and patriotism.
