Steve Malanga, MA Biography

Title:
Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“Proponents of amnesty are… pointing out that under the proposed legislation, undocumented aliens may establish residency only if they pay some $6,500 in fees and fines and return to their home countries to obtain proper documentation. Supporters of the legislation also propose that we boost our border security to minimize further illegal immigration and that we impose tougher penalties on employers who use illegals, moves that are clearly essential. Given that no immigration legislation will ever pass without some compromise on the issue of those already here, that’s probably as good a deal as we can hope for.”
