Ronald Reagan and his take on immigration amnesty

Amnesty is defined as forgiveness, a very Christian concept, but the term has been tainted in the extreme rhetoric that is the immigration debate today. Ronald Reagan, however, understood that many of the foreign nationals who come here undocumented or whose legal residency lapsed were inherently honest and good, just desperate for a better way […]

Immigration quotas as unlawful as slavery

By Dave Leach – A debate about slavery in 1850 between two Congressmen explains how the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution outlawed slavery, and is violated by quotas on how many immigrants are allowed to come legally. It is legal to violate the Constitution, if it is for very compelling reasons and our violation […]

Hitler’s Undocumented Economist Solution

There is a classic scene from the movie “Downfall”, about Hitler’s last days in an underground bunker, that has been pirated to add different English subtitles to, usually with very funny results. I found the website where you can do that. Here is the resulting video, and below that, the transcript: Officer: We’re rounding up […]

Cruz Clues on Immigration: parsing words

Presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz told an April 2 rally, “there is no stronger advocate for legal immigration than I am.” He told NumbersUSA he would reduce immigration by 3/4. Is that like an abortionist saying he is “personally” against abortion; it’s just “choice” that he’s for? By Dave Leach I believe I recall Iowa […]

A constitutional challenge to immigration quotas

Millions of immigrants are never accused of any action which violates any law, yet they are routinely sentenced to worse than jail. Depriving people of liberty without regard to their actions or qualifications violates the 5th and 14th Amendments. By Dave Leach Our laws do not charge immigrant babies with legal responsibility for breaking our […]

Robert Rector and Other Undocumented Economists: Why it matters

There is a deep, dark, musty secret kept by the “researchers” who assure restrictionists that immigrants take citizens’ jobs, drive down wages, drive up our national debt, trash the economy, export our currency, bankrupt hospitals , give us measles, conceal terrorists, and rape our daughters: these “researchers” are not authorities on these subjects; they have […]

Two Documented Economists out of 39 Senate witnesses

Of the 39 “expert witnesses” testifying about S744, “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act”, sprinkled across six hearings that year, only two were documented economists: Grover Norquist, and Douglas Holtz-Eakin. I explain the significance of this in several other articles; this article contains only a list of the 39 and their university credentials. […]

We can’t get immigration right if we get its economic impact wrong

By Dave Leach – From my emails to Senator Grassley’s staff: Economists – that is, people who majored in economics in college – have a very narrow range of disagreement about the benefits of as much more legal immigration (of people who just want to work hard – who pass criminal background checks) as we […]
