Hovering over the Senate immigration debate like a malignant
ghost is the near total failure of the last attempt to bring
immigration under control — a train wreck of a plan passed
in 1986. Then as now, the heart of the plan was a legalization-
for-enforcement trade-off. Roughly 3 million illegal immigrants
were offered legal status in exchange for supposedly tough
new enforcement procedures to stem the flow of undocumented
immigrants.
