David Horowitz, MA Biography

Title:
Founder and Editor-in-Chief of FrontPage Online Magazine
Position:
Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“[In 1986, a]mnesty came, but enforcement was never seriously implemented either at the border or in the interior. Let us not make this mistake again. First border and interior enforcement must be funded, operational, implemented, and proven successful—and only then can we debate the status of current illegal immigrants, or the need for new guest worker programs. We are in the middle of a global war on terror. 2006 is not 1986. Today, we need proof that enforcement (both at the border and in the interior) is successful before anything else happens.”
