"Great nations know the value of human potential. The best measure of national greatness is the ability of nations to cultivate, attract and retain human capital. People tend to vote with their feet. To trace the rise or decline of nations watch where those feet go, and where they leave. It isn’t the whole truth to say that immigrants come to our shores because of our wealth. They also come in hope of being welcomed by a country whose astounding faith in human possibility includes a faith in them, however poor, unkempt — or even undocumented.Lose that faith, and lose what’s best about America, too. Opponents of a liberal immigration policy often insist they welcome legal immigrants and only object to illegal ones. Rubbish. The immigration reform bill introduced in Congress this year aims to cut legal immigration by half. The nativist wing of the right thinks DACA is unconstitutional."
