Border Battles

A combination of day-job responsibilities, speaking engagements -- and bad allergies -- has limited blogging this week.

However, I couldn't completely ignore the issue of the moment. So, here's a few things to whet your appetite.

Here's a good Knight Ridder piece analyzing the
mixed benefits of immigration. (Hat tip: Kevin Drum).

George F. Will and Linda Chavez chime in in support of Bush from the right.

Meanwhile, James Pinkerton, a long-time friend for whom I have much respect comes in with a
more traditionalist view.

What is most interesting about Jim's view is that on so many other economic issues, he has tended to think "outside of the box". Yet, his take is far closer to the "close the borders" take than the flowing free-market technology-based approach on economics that he
tended to champion in the mid-90s.

Anyway, with these links to whet your appetite, a few readers have asked me how I feel about immigration, given my own background. With any luck, I will be able to respond to that tomorrow.
