Quote du jour

And the immigration ads? Sheer propaganda. Any sentient person knows that not every immigrant is a beer entrepreneur or a super-awesome single mom bringing with her a heartbreakingly cute kid. Sentient people know that illegal immigration brings with it strains on social services and problems in labor markets. Sentient people know that even legal immigration can sometimes be dangerous: Witness the spate of deadly violence from Muslim immigrants. We also know that a nation can be compassionate and brave without also rendering itself vulnerable and gullible. So, please, don’t insult us with the notion that there’s just one virtuous position on immigration — that either you’ve got your arms wide open or you’re an evil jerk.
