Re: What Would Reagan Do?

Jed: I don’t believe I said the choice comes down to either shipping all illegals home or doing nothing. My basic point, again, is that our expanding economy will continue to create demand (and opportunity) for cheap labor. Who will fill those jobs if our borders are “closed” — a condition certain to stymie economic growth as well. Immigration can be controlled, but it can’t be shut off. And I think we’ll have to do better than simply dismiss countries from which illegals come as “ratholes.” The point is that most are in our neighborhood, our sphere of influence, and as such we share a certain history with them — which is one huge reason we have this illegal problem in the first place. They’re not going to go away just because we try to write them off.
