Why politicians won't fix immigration

Immigration has been a hot topic for a long time now, and we know politicians aren’t fixing the problem. The reason they aren’t doing so is, simply, politics.

Politically, Ross Ramsey with the Texas Tribune tells KTRH neither side wants to give in on anything.

“The political times push lawmakers in another direction. The public disagrees about what to do about immigration,” Ramsey said.

There doesn't seem to be room for compromise at this point. Instead we get rhetoric from both sides, and the problems at the border aren’t getting fixed. But Ramsey says that won't be the case forever.

“The first thing is the fight and campaign. Then people will come to some sort of consensus, or the crisis will develop in a way that voters change their mind,” Ramsey explained, adding that for now, your representatives are just doing what you (as voters) want them to do.
