It’s time to kick a field goal on immigration

As a long-suffering Cleveland Browns fan, I know all too well what bad decisions look like, and how one bad decision --- even early in a game --- can cost you. In the first quarter of a scoreless football game, you don’t gamble and go for it on fourth down if you are in field-goal range --- you take the points. If the immigration debate is a football game, it’s a scoreless first quarter right now and it’s time to kick the proverbial field goal and take the policy points in the form of enhanced E-Verify and legislation dealing with high-skilled workers.
