Sigh

The whole issue is obviously divisive as hell, but I'm so-so on both sides. I hate the idea of amnesty because we've tried that before and it failed. I hate the idea of open borders while we have all the free stuff available here in this country to lure people in.

I think I'd be ok with what Rand is proposing IF and ONLY IF we bring the troops home and secure the border legitimately. Then I could see a path to citizenship. There's just no way I see massive round-ups of illegals happening to fix the problem, and stopping the influx from across the border, financed by drugs, seems like the most sensible place to start.
