Immigration Reconsidered

It has been a while since I've thought about Victor Davis Hanson, but the time is rolling around. Immigration is likely to be the next thing I start thinking about. My mind is made up about the continuing struggle in Iraq, so as prompted by Michael Savage yesterday, I think I'll reconsider immigration.

There have been a million Mexicans per year entering this country. That's an astounding number. We've got to reconcile our laws and policy with our economy, and we've got to make Mexico accoutable.

I can't understand how America can guard the borders of South Korea,Germany,and Iraq but seem helpless to guard our own.

Eric, me neither, and the only conclusion I can draw is that we don't seem to want to.

Here's the thing, it's not a work issue, it's a serious security issue.

People who mean the U.S. no good will, are immigrating to Mexico where they then cross the border into the U.S.

And these people are terrorists in waiting. Most U.S. citizens think this is just about jobs, they don't have a clue.

Gun battles between ranchers/home owners and illegals along the southern border states. And most people have no clue. And that's just drug runners!

Lateral thought: What if the Mexicans were rich enough, meaning able to get by, that they didn't have to take the risk and expense of emigrating? How do we help make that happen, if we think it's in Americans' best interests?
