Table: Rethinking Immigration


How to increase security without closing the door too tight

WHAT WE SHOULD DO:

SHARE INTELLIGENCE

U.S. officials abroad who process visas need better access to FBI databases to screen out suspects.

USE MORE TECHNOLOGY

Washington should help other nations adopt machine-readable passports. Facial-recognition systems could help verify passport photos.

MONITOR FOREIGN STUDENTS

Expand a pilot program to monitor the 500,000 foreigners in the U.S. on student visas.

AND WHAT WE SHOULDN'T:

REDUCE VISAS

Cutting temporary or immigration visas would anger allies at a critical time and could hurt the economy.

GIVE UP ON AMNESTY

U.S. security would benefit from bringing many of the 8 million or so illegal immigrants now living in the U.S. out of the shadows.

RELY ON BORDER CURBS TO THWART TERRORISTS

It's better to screen out wrongdoers at U.S. consulates abroad.
