Let’s Talk About Immigration

Can I be honest? Immigration is not a pet issue of mine.

It has never ranked highly in my political awareness, I don’t tend to traffic in the latest statistics or partisan trends, and I don’t subscribe to any of the sensational viewpoints. As with so many other policy areas, the debate has been forced into two largely opposing viewpoints: those who would seemingly allow unhampered immigration and those who would crack down heavily and spend more resources attempting to wall off vast stretches of border territory.
