Republicans’ Immigration Deal Makes No Sense – Bloomberg http://mobile.bloomberg.com/news/2014-01-31/republicans-immigration-deal-makes-no-sense.html
Dear Ramesh, you can have future amnesty or you can ramp up workplace verification. You can’t do both. By definition, workplace verification isn’t working if there are people to amnesty.
I could post similar articles from Reihan. I do not know how the decision was made for intellectual and many reform conservatives to oppose immigration reform, but it leads to bizarre pieces like this one or ones debating the rate of Hispanic assimilation by cherry picking data.
It’s rather shocking to me how little attention is paid to evidence about the drivers of illegal immigration (The USA and Mexican economies) and the effectiveness of border security spending (little at best, a gift to contractors in all likelihood)
