On the issue of immigration, John Hood articulates with near perfection why the left is driving down a dangerous road. But be warned: blood-n-soilers hollering "immigrants out" are doing no one any favors. The best place to be on this issue is even-keeled — with a view to reforming federal immigration policy. We should neither eject 12 million, nor give them free (or subsidized) government goodies.
In my opinion, we need to focus on the true pathology, which is our broken, legal immigration system. In that, I think we can find consensus.
