Immigration lessons from across the pond
Posted by Laura
Fraser Nelson writes about Britain's "immigration problem," from the perspective of someone who supports immigration but sees what his country's addiction to cheap foreign labor has diverted from its need to reform welfare and improve education so that the standard of living for working class Brits stays on a track of improvement, not stagnation. There are some important parallels with our current rush to legalize millions of illegals and to import millions of foreign workers during a period of such high unemployment. GOP leaders John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan are desperate to have the House agree to some bill that gets them to conference with the Senate. Perhaps reading this piece would temper their excitement about the prospect.
