Immigration reform and us

Send to Kindle

At long last, a start. That’s all it is, but far better than the petty bickering, name calling and thinly disguised hatred that has dominated the discussion of immigration for too long. Our horrid, dysfunctional, nonsensical, counterproductive immigration system desperately needs reform of the liberal sort, in the classical understanding of the word — favoring freedom and individual initiative. We have far to go before that comes true, but with a bipartisan coalition of eight senators rushing their reform plan into the public eye this week, followed immediately by a plan from an openly sympathetic president of the United States, there is hope in the air. It’s just talk so far, but better than we’ve done in two decades.
