The Immigration Football

I don’t want to kick it Charlie Brown style, which is why, unlike Jordan, I set no stock by the so-called “border surge” amendment, which, if proponents are to be believed, will give us a zillion mile border fence and octuple the number of guards and make it virtually impossible for illegals to become normalized without paying their back taxes six times over plus interest.

Even if all the above were true–and I don’t think any of it is, not even the bit about the border fence (President Bush signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006 when I was a high school sophomore: anyone seen 700 miles of fence yet?)–do let’s remember that we’re still talking about a bill that’s going to hurt working-class Americans by cutting the number of jobs available to them and slashing the wages they’ll be paid if they’re lucky enough to find work in the first place.
