Politicians, who usually can’t agree on the day of the month, have all somehow settled on one talking point when they talk about fixing our broken immigration system, namely that undocumented immigrants need to head to the “back of the line.”

One small problem: There is no line. Lines usually end when you get what you came for, not with the dawning of a new century. As the infographic below so beautifully illustrates, when someone talks about fixing immigration by putting 11 million people at the back of the line, what they’re really telling you is, “I don’t want to solve a problem, I just want you to think I did.” Don’t let them get away with it.
