Hi Mr. Goldberg,
A fan of yours from the Academia!.
W.R.T. your pointer to Ilya Shapiro making a very good point about
overqualified immigrants getting the shaft
This is not really new. I have been here in the US since 1993 and
only next year I’ll qualify to become a US citizen after jumping through
the all the hoops that the Immigration Service put forth. This is one of
the reasons I strongly oppose illegals, because they end up getting better
deals. However, I have been reminded many times by academic colleagues
who generally support amnesty that “life is not really fair” when I make
my view known.
I have a solution to this problem though. Anyone who is/ has been here
illegally should never ever be allowed to get US citizenship nor be
allowed to vote. I am ok with them getting work permit and becoming
legals with some waiting period etc., but no path to citizenship should
ever be provided to the law breakers. I think this is only fair. This will
take away the political muscle of so called “illegal immigrants”.
