Immigration Law, Clear as Mud

"If Congress ever grows enough of a spine to tackle comprehensive immigration reform, it must do more than merely resolve the big items — border and interior enforcement; legalization of unauthorized migrants already here; and a plan for future flows of sojourners and permanent residents.  It must also strive to simplify the law.  Consider what should be a straightforward concept — following the rules.  How does a noncitizen comply with the immigration laws?  What does it take to maintain legal immigration status?  Sadly, the answer is as clear as fracking fluid runoff." – Angelo Paparelli, Aug. 5, 2012.
