Don’t miss the new Cato Unbound featuring this morning’s lead essay by Richard Rodriguez.
Americans have tended to abrogate to economists the question of the costs and the benefits of illegal immigration. But, surely, beyond how much Betsy Ross is willing to pay for a head of lettuce, there is the question of morality, there is the question of Mexico. How much of Mexico are we willing to take within our borders? I believe the question might better be asked of a theologian, than an economist.
Rodriguez is no theologian, but he gives it a shot. Watch out for Victor Davis Hanson’s reply Wednesday. He’s not thrilled with Rodriguez.
