by way of Le Cygne Gris
Let's go back to square one. The purpose of American immigration laws and policies is not to be either humane or inhumane to illegal immigrants. The purpose of immigration laws and policies is to serve the national interest of this country.
There is no inherent right to come live in the United States, in disregard of whether the American people want you here. Nor does the passage of time confer any such right retroactively.
This is coupled nicely with
Discussing the salutory effect on unemployment that Alabama's anti illegal immigration act has had since its passage.
Why is it that only Black Republicans are allowed to speak most of the truth regarding immigration issues without being totally demonized? I suspect this is a part of the appeal of Herman Cain, many Republicans think him immunized against the charge of racism for the horrible crime of advocating, in some cases, their interests as non-elite white people.
Sowell comes awfully close here to advocating my demographic hegemony thesis---damn, listen to this:
When you import people, you import cultures, including cultures that have been far less successful in providing decent lives and decent livelihoods. The American people have a right to decide for themselves whether they want unlimited imports of cultures from other countries
Once again, thanks to Le Cygne Gris for bringing these items of news to our attention.
