More on the "rule of law" argument...

Again, I have to disagree with RangerMac.

When a system has become as broken as our immigration system is, (see my earlier posts on the subject here and here), we have to fix it, and admit we screwed up.

A good portion of the 12 million illegal immgirants are victims of this system, just as much as other people have been victimized by the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act, and eminent domain. Conservatives have acted to address these other abuses by bureaucrats. Why do they not do so when it is a messed-up application of immigration law? Isn't reforming the law, and cutting the victims of that law (even if they have not followed the letter of the law) some slack the right thing to do?
