I'M NOT SAYING that situations are identical, but this is what happens when you give a blanket amnesty to illegal immigration as Spain did last year:
A veritable flotilla carrying nearly 1,000 illegal immigrants from Africa to Spain’s Canary Islands over the weekend has set off alarms in Madrid, prompting fears of a further onslaught fuelled by traffickers and good weather.

The Spanish government reacted yesterday by announcing a series of emergency security and diplomatic measures to help stem the tide.

I'm all for legal immigration, in Spain, in the US or anywhere else, but there must be a process; we can argue how wide it is, but we shouldn't argue that once established it must be enforced.
