Wow, Brookings tipped it's bias right out in the open in the first sentence of this article - "A new Brookings report finds that college-educated immigrants now outnumber those who enter the United States with just a high school degree."
I'd love to completely fisk the crud right out of this poorly disguised rational for loose immigration but I have to take the kids to the school bus soon.
Suffice it to say that this "report" was based on Census data which has a 10 to 20% undercounting of illegal immigrants and Brookings could not separate out the legal immigrants from the illegal ones. Additionally, most illegals immigrants do not have even a high school education so comparing college-educated (not graduated, simply educated) and high school degrees is a red herring. It is basicly comparing two relatively small parts of our huge illegal immigration problem.
I have no problem with immigrants being married to one. I do have a huge problem with illegal immigrants. Everyone who comes to this country "through the front doo" is as "American" as I am and my family came in 1634. Anyone who tries to sneak in the back door needs to go home.
First non-respondersDecades of social rot in California found their fullest expression on Memorial Day, when firefighters and police officers stood by and allowed a 53-year-old man to slowly drown himself just off the Alameda shore.
I watched The Daily Show when it had TWO co-hosts (its creator and Craig Kilborn). Then it was just Craig. Then Jon Stewart showed up. But I haven't watched for years. Why? Well, Jon used to be cool. Now his show does crap like this.
If you don't think this is a problem, to paraphrase Lionel Chetwyn’s Open Letter, what if you replaced the word "conservative" with African-American, Jew, or Homosexual? Would this particular bias be acceptable then?
