Given late events, I thought I’d repost my comments on immigration from a month ago:

I agree that we have a huge immigration problem in this country. But I don’t think it will be addressed by simply building a big fence to keep Hispanics out. I think the best solution would be to grant amnesty to all the hard-working illegals in our country and to vastly increase the number of immigrants we allow into America every year. Once they get here, we should make them American citizens, teach them English, and start taxing their paychecks. With eight million illegal immigrants already here, it’s pretty clear to me that we’ve got plenty jobs to go around.

Still sounds good, except that now people are banndying about the number 11 million. Whatever the number, we can’t just export those millions of people.
