I am a Republican, and one that is much less hard-nosed on the subject of immigration than Mickey Kaus is. We’re going to have the conversation about what to do next, and if Mickey wants to join in then he needs to join up.
PS: Fair warning: Charles Krauthammer’s plan (which I can sum up as “Let us close the border, and you can have your green cards”) works for me on a basic level; it’s a plan and it can be implemented. And there’s a lot more people in the GOP that will get behind it than Mickey thinks that there are. Some of them are even Tea Partiers.
