On An Issue As To Which The G.O.P. Is Hopeless...

Democrats might galvanize America.

The left in this country can win back a massive majority in Congress -- not just the thin one they have now -- by seizing upon one issue.

Here's one very interesting view that you'll probably never hear from the likes of MoveOn.org or Howard Dean:


Illegal immigration hurts most liberal causes. It depresses wages, crushes unions, and kills all hope for universal health coverage. Progressives have to understand that there can be little social justice in an unregulated labor market.

"Liberals are so confused on this issue," says Vernon Briggs, a labor economist at Cornell University and self-described liberal. "Immigration policy has got to be held accountable for its economic consequences."

Many Democrats used to get it. In 1964, President Johnson abolished the Bracero program, which brought in "temporary" farm workers from Mexico. Its demise let Cesar Chavez organize US farm workers. His union won some battles early on, but a new wave of illegal immigrants in the mid-1970s reversed that progress. The union barely exists today.

When will the Democrats ever learn?



Believe me -- I'm sick and tired of Republican inaction on illegal immigration. I write this in hopes that some party -- any party -- will do something about it.

Even if it's the Democrats, so be it.

Why has nothing been done?
