Opinion: Exploring our broken immigration system

U.S. immigration policy and its effects on this nation, and really the world, continues to be a subject of daily headlines.

Immigration problems remain a policy issue with broad implications for most all of us, even those who don’t live anywhere near U.S. border checkpoints.

Immigration is also a controversial, divisive issue, we realize. And that’s a good part of why it’s eluded a comprehensive solution up to this point. This despite multiple efforts, including bipartisan work, to devise and enact real fixes.
