Richard Nadler, co-editor of Daily Dispatch, and contributor to National Review is out with a rather lengthy piece that argues against calls from within the party advocating for a mass deporting of undocumented/illegal immigrants. In the article Nadler argues rather strongly that such a move would be impractical and foreign to this nations history of dealing with immigrant communities.
Here is an excerpt form the actual article:
The deep thinkers of the deportation movement — I mean Pat Buchanan and Phyllis Schlafly, not my recent critics on NRO — envision a restructuring of the conservative movement and the Republican party, one that replaces the “fusionist” alliance of traditionalists, entrepreneurs, and defense hawks with a new alliance of traditionalists, middle-class workers, and economic nationalists. This “new” American conservatism is actually an echo of the “conservatism” of the old world, built on blood and soil, or, in Mike Savage’s formulation, borders, language, and culture. The “outreach” contemplated by advocates of this revised conservatism is ambitious in the extreme.Read Entire Article - Against Mass Deportation by Richard Nadler on National Review Online.
