Barone, the Iraq war has been devastating to our country . what will be even more devastating is if we grant amnesty to 12-20 million illegal aliens . These 12-20 million illegal aliens will spnsor their next of kin asap and we will be flooded with 50-60 million people with low skilss from third world countries. Democrats will have their permament edge in both the senate and house and the presidency. If currently 47% of legal immigrants (mostly hispanic) are on some form of government (TAXPAYER) ASSISTANCE , then what can we expect form the next 60 million ? You have written such foolish columns against reason and in support of this amnesty and open immigration that I cannot help but think that you are a paid lobbyist for open borders .
