Roger Clegg of the Center for Equal Opportunity says conservatives are making five mistakes on immigration:

The first is a sin of omission:  Some are so concerned about levels of immigration—and, in particular, the problem of illegal immigration—that they are neglecting the more important task of ensuring immigrant assimilation.  There are also three discrete constitutional issues (each with policy implications) on which some conservatives have lined up on the wrong side:  opposing birthright citizenship, supporting racial profiling, and supporting state enforcement policies that are at odds with federal enforcement policies.  Finally, and in some ways most importantly, some conservatives have failed to strike the right, pro-immigrant tone.

Over to you, Mark Krikorian.
