JPod’s Amnesty Question

Well, John, that rather begs the question as to whether any “action” (in the sense that you mean) is needed at all. I suspect that with real border controls (not meaningless gestures such as Bush’s ever more farcical Potemkin fence), and more effective sanctions (civil and criminal) targetted at employers (you might want to phase these in in the case of smaller businesses) much of this problem will gradually solve itself. And while it is doing so, benign neglect of the type recommended by Andy McCarthy seems eminently sensible.
