It’s very awkward when people known for their extreme right-wing views, who are nonetheless Establishment through and through, try to convince wingnuts that immigration reform is in their best interests. Thus is the case with Michael Barone. Basically, his argument is that the new bill will make it very difficult for illegal immigrants to find work and, in any case, Mexico’s economy is better than ours so no one will want to come here anyway.

Whatever works, I guess.
