Here are the horns of the dilemma: There are a number of people who comment here at Townhall.com who are against immigration in general. Phyllis Schlafly, for one, argues that we are giving jobs away to illegals, etc. We should support immigration. It's good for the economy. It will help us pay for Social Security and Medicare in the future, compensating for our declining birth rate. BUT, we cannnot simultaneously provide all the free stuff (welfare, SNAP, in-state tuition rates, driver's licensing, motor voter registration, etc.) and still expect to keep illegals out. If we reduced the number of goodies we give people they actually would "self-deport."
