It’s what Democrats do. Here’s another installment, this one by Democratic Party Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton:
I would create the first ever Office of Immigrant Affairs. [The office] would create a dedicated place in the White House to coordinate integration policies across the federal government and with state and local government as well.
Never mind that the private economy already is in that niche, groups like
CASA de Maryland, Refugee Council USA, the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, the US Catholic Conference of Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services, and The National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.
Never mind that myriad Federal agencies already involved in immigration affairs could be combined and streamlined, agencies like US Citizenship and Immigration Services; Department of Labor’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification; Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs, its visa management facility; The National Visa Center, a private company under contract to the DoS that’s in the middle of the green card issuing process.
But that would shrink government. Can’t have that.
