One of the best things the new Democratic Congress could do is pass an immigration bill that tries to address the real issues head-on.

  • America needs workers to do the jobs that the US-born can’t or won’t do: how and where is it going to get them?
  • Twelve million people live within US borders illegally: since the land
    of the free cannot possibly deport all, or even most, of them, what is
    it going to do with them?

Hopeful signs are emerging that the new Congress might just be up to the challenge, as an exhaustive New York Times piece reports. Fingers crossed.
