Corporate greed eats at heart of immigration policy

Juliette Kayyem’s May 14 op-ed “A crackdown avoided: In Mississippi, business interests thwart harsh bill on illegal immigrants” explains the sources of push-back against anti-immigrant measures in Mississippi, and rightly declares that it’s a “discomforting victory” for immigrant advocates.

The case of a patient who receives treatment of the symptoms of a disease, but nothing to address the chronic cause of the ailment, is not a victory. As long as we in this country refuse to address or even admit the existence of the real causes of immigration, we will never have any true victory.
