quote of the day29 Aug 2006
In the comments of Bob’s post, that I mentioned previously, Bill Hobbs drops this gem:
Sean, it is a stretch to assume this would cause a rise in homelessness.
Many of them have a home. It’s big, roomy and loaded with natural resources. It’s also kind of a dump in places, so there’s lots of work to do.
It’s called Mexico.
And if they can’t find a home here, most would go back there.
The problem with trying to have a serious debate about illegal immigration is that the nuanced (and faulty) arguments about economics and “safety”, crime, terrorism and so on are quickly ruined as people like Bill make obvious the real sentiment that immigration criminalization panders to: xenophobic hysteria.
