"We Have To Have Limits Because Of Assimilation"

Or so said Rush Limbaugh on the radio earlier today. Finally, a caller had made the point that perhaps the solution to our immigration problem was to let more people in to the country legally.

But no, letting more people in could never be the appropriate solution- only stricter laws and sending people out. Sure maybe we do need limits, but our economy is thriving today with millions of illegal immigrants in the country. So why couldn't they have come in legally? The lonely libertarian just doesn't buy the over used conservative arguments. The real issue isn't the rule of law, national security, or the economy, the real issue is the fear of an immigrant influx and the threat to traditional American culture. And the real solution- fewer restrictions and a more efficient legal immigration system is ignored by all sides of the debate.
