David Brooks: Immigration is ‘The Easy Problem’


"The forlorn pundit doesn’t even have to make the humanitarian case that immigration reform would be a great victory for human dignity.  The cold economic case by itself is so strong.  Increased immigration would boost the U.S. economy. …  immigration reform is our best chance to increase America’s economic dynamism … if we can’t pass a law this year, given the overwhelming strength of the evidence, then we really are a pathetic basket case of a nation." – David Brooks, Feb. 1, 2013.
