Immigration to the US
To grasp American immigration policy, to the extent that it can be grasped, one need only remember that the United States forbids smoking while subsidizing tobacco growers.

As parents, the immigrants would be irresponsible not to cross.

We have immigration because we want immigration. Liberals favor immigration because it makes them feel warm and fuzzy and international and all, and from a genuine streak of decency. Conservative Republican businessman favor immigration, frequently
sotto voce, because they want cheap labor that actually shows up and works.

And so, while various conservative groups (not including businessmen) rush out to guard the borders, nice liberal professors in the Northeast hurried to learn Spanish to help local illegals settle in.

People complain that Mexico doesn’t seal the borders. Huh? Mexico is a country, not a prison.

If you want to see a reasonable immigration policy, look to Mexico.
