When We "Solved" the Illegal Immigration Problem Most people do not remember that we "solved" the illegal immigration problem once and for all in 1986. The 1986 law was a product of more than five years' work by Senator Alan K. Simpson, Republican of Wyo- ming, and Representative Romano L. Mazzoli, Demo- crat of Kentucky. Both left Congress more than a de- cade ago. There were somewhere between 3 million to 5 mil- lion people in the country illegally at the time. Congress passed the law, Pub.L. 99-603; 100 Stat. 3359, to solve the problem, It had two parts. There was the "amnesty" part. Anyone in the country illegally, continually since 1982 could get a "temporary legal status" (they didn't like the term "amnesty" then either) by paying a $185 fee and showing "good moral character." They could get green cards after 18 months if they learned English. Then there was the enforcement part. The bill pro- vided for improved surveillance technology andmore staff for border enforcement. There were also penalties against businesses that hired people in the country ille- gally. However, business had to "knowingly" hire the illegal alien to be liable, creating a huge loophole. I think it is interesting to see what several Senators said after the law was passed: Our Senator Charles Grassley said he regretted voting for the 1986 measure. "I thought then that taking care of three million people ..... .... : illegally in the country would solve the problem once @It' and for all," Senator Grassley said. "I found out, how- at the ever, if you reward illegality, you get more of it. Toda) people here illegally."

If we were to pass another "com- prehensive bill" as some are advocating, I fear we will again get legalization andmaybe citizenship, with little effort to enforce the penalty provisions. We will then encourage millions more to come illegally hoping for another amnesty law in the future. It is indeed frustrat- ing to hear the same arguments that were used to pass the 1986 bill supporting a similar bill now.
