James R. Edwards Jr., PhD Biography

Fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS)
Con to the question "Should the US Federal Government Provide a Path to Citizenship for Undocumented Immigrants?"

“As for mass amnesty, by legalizing millions of illegal immigrants, government does not show mercy. Rather, it obligates its citizens to bear the injustices aliens have committed against the body politic.”
