Abstract:
With today's immigration debate in the forefront of the American political arena, there are two legislative sides to consider from a philosophical standpoint In the pursuit of reforming the current, arguably broken, immigration system, the Senate has proposed and passed an immigration bill, S744; the House of Representatives currently does not have any legislation proposed and is suggesting a gradual approach to immigration - essentially addressing one problem at a time. The Senate is acting comprehensively yet extensively, and included many strong and controversial ideas, while the House of Representatives is seemingly airing on the side of caution when addressing the issue of immigration. Although immigration reform is perceived as a much needed, it is unlikely either of the current legislative perspectives could be successfully implemented. From a philosophical perspective it is questionable whether either should be implemented regardless, due to considerations of fairness.
