Democrats are exultant that President Donald Trump had to reverse his policy of separating immigrant families at the border.With this tussle, Trump sent a clear reminder to his supporters of one simple thing – that he is willing to get tough on immigration.In their delight at the Trump administration's latest misstep, Democrats may be walking into a trap.The larger question is surely: Should the country enforce its immigration laws or, if circumvented, should we just give up?Immigration has become an issue that motivates a large group of Americans passionately, perhaps like no other.Nationalism has been around for centuries, but it is now, in a sense, the last doctrine standing.The solutions to America's broken immigration system are complicated. But Democrats would do well to remember plain symbolism as well, something former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama never forgot, which is why their rhetoric and actions on immigration were often far more centrist than those of many current Democratic leaders.Trump might have lost this round.
