How wonderful that we don't need to worry at all about terrorists coming into this country. It's also a relief to know that all those illegal immigrants in our prisons are imaginary. Best of all we must now have so much excess wealth that we can afford to just shovel it out to the world's poor as they stream across our borders to grab the loot. Chapman's a genius!

Another genius is here to tell us that no terrorist could come across the border. Relax everybody!

Everyone in Washington is showing new interest in immigration reform. President Barack Obama needs to do something to cement the loyalty of Hispanics, who did so much to re-elect him. Republicans seem to grasp that they had better soften their hard line unless they want to forfeit any hope with Latinos and Asian-Americans.

Both sides also agree that a balanced, two-part approach is in order: stricter enforcement and improved border security on one hand and a pathway to legalization on the other. It's an excellent plan -- except for that first part.

To say we need more enforcement to seal the border is...
