Bill Richardson misleads on immigration (again, and again...)
1. He offered the now-standard "false choice" between a massive legalization plan (i.e., amnesty) and mass deportations. He forgot to mention a third choice: "attrition". Under that plan we'd enforce our current laws in order to encourage many illegal aliens to return home voluntarily.
2. He claimed that legalization was not amnesty, ignoring how any such plan will be perceived by millions and millions of people around the world. They will definitely see it as amnesty, and they'll come a-running to take part in either the current or a future amnesty.
