Mickey Kaus also liked the proposal, by a reader signing himself "An Economist" [send him congratulatory mail]that illegals be given sixty days to leave the country if they ever want to be citizens.[Today’s Letter: Go Home Now! An Economist Reader Provides The Speech Bush Should Give—But Won’t]

Kaus writes:

A proposal that deserves to be considered as part of the policy mix! If not, why not? It might be appropriate, for example, for those immigrants "who crossed the border recently" and don't merit a path to citizenship even in Bush's "roots"-oriented scheme—that is, if Bush is serious about denying them legalized status. Or is the idea to wait until they've put down "roots" too?[Are Conservatives Cheap Dates?]
