Late Professor of Political Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Pro to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"What we don't need--at the expense of workers and taxpayers--is the kind of solution [where] everyone present within the boundaries of the United States ought to have the same rights and benefits. It would be politically irresponsible to turn these legislative issues over to the courts to decide on the basis of constitutional principles. Instead, we need reasoned analysis and public discussion of how we can balance diverse objectives to accomplish what is fiscally possible, what is humane, and what best serves the goals of incorporating migrants into citizenship, deterring illegals, maintaining public health, and protecting children."
Experts Individuals with advanced degrees in fields relevant to immigration.
