36. It's nice to see that we agree!
I also have a lot of sympathy for people who come here to provide for their families and run into adversity. It comes from working in a migrant ed program one summer in California. These are, for the most part, great people who work hard and do right by their families.

But I also feel for the people already here in low-skill jobs who now have to deal with even more competition. Mass immigration is hurting them bad and we need to do something to help them, too.

How can we continue to provide opportunities for people from other parts of the world without having those same people used as a wedge against our own poor and working-class workers? That's a conversation we need to have on the Left, and soon, because we already know what Big Money Inc. and their minions in the GOP want to do about it.
