Michael Riley, MA Biography

Immigration Reporter at Denver Post
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow a Path to Citizenship for Undocumented Immigrants?"

“Just about everyone caught on a 205-mile section of Texas border between Eagle Pass and Del Rio is now charged with a federal misdemeanor and sent before a judge, then to jail… The experience on this small stretch of Texas border strongly suggests that simply enforcing existing laws can create an effective deterrent and help end the border’s revolving door.”

“Criminal Crossing: Part 3,” Denver Post, Mar. 7, 2007
