Laura Ingraham hosted Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute.
Mac Donald said California immigration is the future of the US. She said that while many of the immigrants are wonderful and hard working, but due to the oreponderance of low skill workers whose children haven't prospered, there is more crime, teen pregnancy, straining social services, educaitaonal, health care and welfare. They are mired in low wage jobs. She said economic inequality is being increased as other minority groups here compete for low skilled jobs and lose out. She said there is a conflation of high and low skilled immigrants experience muddies the debate. She said there is no difference betewen US citizens and immigrants as far as business creation. She also noted there is a class system among Latinos between South American and Central American immigrants.
Mac Donald said what makes this country great is the rule of law and Ingraham added freedom as well. She resents the mainstream media playing up the separation of families aspect of immigration as a justification for keeping and allowing family members to come into the US. She said immigrants favor big government and that it's a devil's bargain to cave in to amnesty and that we should focus on high skilled immigrants that speak English. Ingraham added that people who promote illegal immigration are elites that don't send their children to schools with immigrants or live in their neighborhoods.
