Nathan Newman comments on Ellen Almer's immigration article in FrontPage. Ellen seems to think that we should strictly enforce the existing laws and deport thousands of people. Nathan says that such a scenario will only force more jobs out of the country.

I think that we should revamp our system to make legal entry easier and efficient. The tremendous pressure to go illegal is not only fueled by the economic disparities but also the Byzantine system of legal entry. Let's clean up our act then do what we can to help people who make that desparate journey north.
