More On Immigration

Michael Stickings at The Reaction has published an excellent piece on immigration. The search for common ground makes sense for us all. Unlike gay marriage, last election's false crisis, practically everyone agrees illegal immigration must be addressed. Articles like this give me hope that we can find common ground and common good.

"Let America's policy towards these immigrants be generous, fair, and
flexible. Do not punish them for having chosen to come to America. Offer
them an
opportunity to settle, legally, for good. If they work, if they pay
their taxes,
if they accept the American way of life and want to be a part
of it, indeed, if
they are already American, broadly speaking, be generous
to them."

This is a must read if you believe in conversation instead of polarization.
