Totalitarian North Korea and George Orwell’s 1984

Immigration Reform Is Not Possible

Illegal immigration in the United States has been a systemic problem for decades. It was a problem that former President Ronald Reagan attempted to address with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, when illegal immigrants numbered approximately 5 million.
