Here's the thing, in spirit, I agree w/you. In practice, the frame you're trying to impose on the immigration debate - while a thoughtful one - does not match the parameters of the discussion we're actually having. Of course, this is part of the intellectual's core dilemma - how to frame the debate, and how to have that frame be both pragmatic yet smart?

Given you're trying to remove labor from the discussion of immigration (I'm still not sold, btw, but more convinced by this post than others), how do you respond to political tactics (and age-old intellectual debates) such as this:

You'll thank me when all is said and done, right, for "helping" you develop this specialty in immigration policy?

;)

PS: I'd like to see someone treat the issue of education that is also so muddled in this debate.

I came across your blog through a technorati search and I was wondering if you'd be interested in a link exchange with Immigration Orange. I'm always looking for different perspectives to interact with and value all viewpoints. Email me at kyledeb at gmail dot com if you're interested.
