A Terrible Idea
I think Roger L. Simon's proposal to grant amnesty to illegal aliens but forbid them to vote until they've left the country and reapplied is a terrible idea.
According to the Constitution, voting strength in the House of Representatives is proportional to population. That means areas that attract immigrants will see increased voting strength per voter. Since the jobs that immigrants do were those done by adolescents a generation or two ago, that means areas with low birth rates (i.e., “blue” states) will become more powerful. We can expect Democrats to go along with this enthusiastically.
By the am I the only open-borders proponent among Pajamas Media commenters?
