Immigration and Legislation
It is becoming clear to me that people are fighting the wrong fights on immigration. Many of those who want unfettered immigration would accomplish much more if they fought for legislation to expand and streamline legal immigration (not amnesty) for unskilled workers. Many of those opposed to illegal immigration would drop their opposition in the face of a controlled, systematic way of bringing responsible new citizens, skilled or unskilled, into the nation. Think a modern "Ellis Island" of Arizona or California or Texas.
