I just wanted to point out to you that when you side with the interests of labor over employers, that puts you squarely in the leftist camp.

These "economic" arguments against immigration are just bad. You sound like John Kerry ranting against Judas corporations.

First, you should get your metaphors right. Kerry decries "Benedict Arnold" corporations. Could you imagine the media outcry if he had the temerity to use Christian imagery like Judas?

Secondly, there is nothing "squarely in the leftist camp" about favoring workers over employers. Or do you think that there should be absolutely no regulation on businesses? Are we missing the boat on keeping kids in school and out of factories? Should we allow tainted meat to be sold?

Finally, having lived in California for nearly twenty years, I've seen the economic arguments against immigration first hand. As illegal immigration has spiked, our quality of life has decreased dramatically. Or do you think that importing people who are illiterate in their own nation's language to our nation is the super-secret key to prosperity?"
