Recently I've noticed that elected Democrats are advocating for "tough and fair" immigration. US immigration law is plenty tough enough already. The US needs to legalize immigration for those peaceful immigrants who wish to live and work in the US. It appears to me that Democrats think immigration is a tough on crime issue when the issue is that crime *is* the issue when separated from peaceful immigration. The only way to reduce crime related to immigration prohibition is to make it possible for immigrants to live and work in the US. Given that Libertarian Party candidates are the only people (that I've noticed) willing to identify prohibition as the problem and eliminating prohibition as the solution I hope voters in November will support a solution (ending prohibition) to the crime that results from prohibition.
