NYT's Rachel Swarns spews Dem talking points at BYU
"Almost everyone agrees that the current system isn't working, but whether or not we as a nation are going to come to some solution with how to fix that still remains unanswered."
I discussed this talking point usually used by supporters of "comprehensive" reform here; see also John McCain and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. And, here's Tamar Jacoby: "we must fix our broken immigration system". Finding worthies such as George Bush, David Brooks, et al saying almost the same thing is left as an exercise
Swarns goes on:
"Now everyone knows that we're a nation of immigrants, and when you think of mass migration to the United States, we often think about the early 1900s and the ships pulling into New York City."
In her quest to "peel away the layers", she might consider disclosing the whole truth about those she quotes as well as looking a bit deeper into the story, such as who encourages illegal immigration and why.
