Re: Dr. Sowell's last comment: "I don't know how many Hispanic votes the Republicans think they are going to pick up by going soft on illegal immigration." Personally, I think the GOP would be better off making an effort to explain (in Spanish and any other language necessary) why the "rule of law" is important to a free and civil society, and how it helped create the most propserous nation in world history in just a hundred years. If immigrants understand that respect for law, instead of obedience to a king or dictator, is one of the attributes that has made this the country they want to come to, the GOP might at least gain their respect, if not their votes.
