QOTD: "[Immigration Reform is] not exactly working out that way in Britain, and seems even less likely to do so in America. Were "comprehensive immigration reform" to bring all 11 million members (a lowball estimate) of the Undocumented-American community out of the shadows and put them on the "pathway to citizenship," how many would vote Republican? Two million? Three? Of the millions more parents, grandparents, and other relatives who would follow through "family reunification," what proportion of those dependents would be receptive to whatever remains of the GOP message? Twenty percent? Thirty? By comparison with the United States, Canada and Australia have genuinely diversified immigration programs drawing from across the planet, and conservatives have had some success in wooing Chinese, Indians, and other demographics to their banner. But the retrospective legalization of a vast, unrepresentative army of the Undocumented from one corner of the globe would transform America demographically into California, the once-golden state where no Republican can be elected except a pandering celebrity squish such as Schwarzenegger who is willing to serve as frontman for the Democrats." --Mark Steyn
