Belmont, Mass. â€” Even the staunchest liberals can`t deny that Illegal immigration is a monstrous and growing problem that we can no longer affordâ€¦.If these were flush times, it might not matter as much. But our porous borders enable an influx of too many people with costly burdens and few benefits. It`s easy to feel compassion for those who desperately want to come here for a better life. But the United States is like a lifeboat on the Titanic. We can`t keep adding people without sacrificing the entire boatload to certain death.
Not everything Murphy says will please all VDARE.comâ€™s readers
We need a smarter plan that allows amnesty for productive, if illegal, members of our communities
But much will
â€¦ while simultaneously erecting meaningful barriers to new illegal immigration and requiring aggressive deportation of millions of illegals unworthy of citizenshipâ€¦ First, we have to accept as a premise that just being illegal is a crimeâ€¦ Second, anyone who is here illegally and is in prison for committing another crime should immediately be deportedâ€¦ Finally, we need to stop â€?birthright citizenship"
Murphy is described as
a leading victimâ€™s rights advocateâ€¦and an adjunct professor at New England Law in Boston.
