Unfortunately, this was the case when the Rotary Club in Wayzata, Minn., a town of about 4,000 people just west of Minneapolis (and a four-hour drive from my Wisconsin home), said I would have 25 minutes at its Oct. 22 luncheon to discuss illegal immigration plus a 5-minute Q&A.
But what I found even more unsettling than the Rotary's unwillingness to devote more time to such a critical public policy issue was the na??vet?© of Chuck Schoen , the Rotarian who extended the invitation to me:
"We have not had a speaker on the illegal subject, so I would like to enlighten the locals to what is heading our way from S. Cal(ifornia)."Memo to Mr. Schoen: Illegal immigration isn't "headed your way." It's already there.
