Jason Riley Assails Myths of Immigration

In a provocative new book, Jason Riley makes the case for welcoming more legal immigrants to the United States. Drawing on history, scholarly studies and first-hand reporting, Riley argues that today's newcomers are fueling America's prosperity and dynamism. He challenges the prevailing views on talk radio and cable TV that immigrants are overpopulating the country, stealing jobs, depressing wages, bankrupting social services, filling prisons, resisting assimilation and promoting big government.

The only problem with Mr. Riley's argument is that 100% of all illegals immigrants have broken the laws of these United States by entering this country illegaly. Maybe this is a small oversight on his behalf. I cannot help but notice everyone in favor of illegal immigration seem to forget this small fact.
