The Wall Street Journal on Immigration


I often disagree with the editors of the WSJ on the politics and policy of immigration, but the shots against them earlier today in this space were not persuasive. The analysis linked treats it as equivalent when a restrictionist Republican incumbent is defeated and a non-restrictionist Republican who resigns is not replaced by another Republican. It also treats everyone who isn’t a member of the immigration-reform caucus as a non-restrictionist. Chris Shays, who’s on the non-restrictionist list, didn’t take the Journal line on immigration. Neither did Steve Chabot.
