Legalization or Detention?

I couldn't help noticing that the impact on children of a program in Spain that legalized 600,000 African, Latin American, and eastern European workers, which is the subject of an article published today in The New York Times, contrasts sharply with the effects on children in the United States of their parents' detention described in a June 8 article in the Los Angeles Times.

I'm wondering: Are policymakers in the United States thinking about what kind of society we want to be in the long run?

Enough said.
