The NY Times editors say that now Obama has been re-elected, it’s time to legalize everyone in the country illegally.
What the Times calls for is, essentially, open borders with no restrictions, because once we legalize the 11 million or more who are here now, the rest of the world will hear about it and move here, and either we deport those new illegals, which according to the Times is an evil and despicable thing, or legalize them too.
Prior to the election, commenters kept insisting there would be no difference in outcomes between President Obama and President Romney. But we see that is wrong. The post-election momentum appears to be in favor of enough Republicans joining with Democrats to legalize all of illegal immigrants currently in the country.
