Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy
BIG GOVERNMENT REPUBLICANS
Do you consider yourself a good conservative Republican? Do you think you're pro-business? Are you for smaller government, lower taxes and less federal spending? Then you have no business supporting the anti-immigration agenda being pushed by the big government xenophobes who think employers should be cops, DHS should get the opportunity to approve every employee you hire and government should be throwing up tariffs restricting trade in services. There is nothing conservative about being anti-immigration, as this Scott Henson blog post points out. For those who think they're conservative because they're just about law and order, are you lobbying to change the laws to allowing employers to legally bring in needed workers (and I'm not talking about legalizing workers in the country illegally - just future workers)? If not, you're not about law and order. You're just anti-immigrant.
