Comment: Immigration and Security
In today's issue of Immigration Daily, we are carrying an article by Stratfor which argues that it is impossible for the government to stop every single small scale terrorist attack by individual, lone wolf terrorists like the one in Chattanooga. It argues that since 9/11 government has done a remarkable job of protecting the homeland against large scale attacks by well-funded and advanced terrorist networks against valuable or symbolic targets. Implementing systemic changes to prevent large scale attacks and making smaller attacks harder is the proper strategy for the government and it should not be judged by the impossible standard that it must prevent every terrorist attack. Otherwise, all kinds of draconian measures will be promoted as a result of a single small scale attack that would make normal life impossible.
The same pattern applies to immigration. Government should concentrate on making mainstream large-scale immigration as simple and easy as possible, while implementing commonsensical safeguards that prevent criminals from immigrating. In spite of these safeguards, we should expect that a handful of immigrants with criminal intent will get through, and we must resist the clamor for draconian immigration restrictions when an individual immigrant is involved in a crime. Immigration is an integral part of normal life in America. The price of "perfect security" is paralysis of normal life-and such life is neither perfect nor secure.
