Glenn Reynolds put a finger on my thoughts in writing this post:

A reader asks why I haven’t weighed in on Bush’s immigration plan. The answer is that I don’t really know what I think about it. I generally favor open immigration for people who want to become Americans. I do think that illegal immigration should be treated differently than legal immigration (because it’s, you know, illegal) but I don’t have strong feelings on what ought to be done, specifically.

He pointed readers to this post by Lt. Smash, which seems entirely reasonable.

Amnesty for illegals is clearly a bad idea, as it merely encourages more illegals to immigrate in the hopes of yet another amnesty. But I’m all in favor of freely allowing any peaceful alien who can find a job and support themselves here in the States to do so.
