Description:

The paper discusses how immigration has become a highly contentious issue in American politics, due to the fear of terrorism and worry for the nation's economy. The paper discusses how pressure for enforcement has created a domestic constitutional issue that raises the issue of who is responsible for enforcing immigration laws.

From the Paper:

"Immigration has become a highly contentious issue in American politics, probably the second most contentious behind abortion in terms of domestic policy. Protection of the borders has become more important to many people since the 9-11 attacks, based on the view that terrorists could cross the borders and wreak havoc. The terrorists involved in the 9-11 attacks entered the country legally and then failed to go home as they were supposed to do, but none simply crossed the borders illegally. Still, the perception grew quickly that protecting the borders was necessary to protect us from terrorism."
