America benefits greatly from legal immigration, which is a constant source of national renewal. Where illegal immigration is concerned, there's plenty of room for disagreement about potential solutions. But the raucous reception to the governor's report and proposals makes clear that a civil debate will be hard to come by. Opponents have generally tried to shout Pawlenty down, not discuss his ideas.
It's time for the governor's critics to turn down the volume. We need an informed discussion about what illegal immigration - one of our most pressing issues - means to Minnesota and to our nation.
Turn down the volume? We're talking Democrats here, friends. When you've got nothing but diaphanous arguments, all you can do is bluster.
