George Will: Deporting All Illegal Immigrants Will Never Happen
During the same This Week appearance that included the fascinating discussion on the Constitution that James Joyner wrote about earlier, George Will also spoke some common sense on the issue of immigration, and GOP intransigence over the issue:
“To deport them would require not just police measures we would never tolerate. The majority have been here five years or more, they’ve had children here, their children are citizens. But to depart them would require a line of buses bumper-to-bumper extending from San Diego to Alaska. Not going to happen. And as soon as people come to terms with that, then we get on to settling it.”
Will is, of course, absolutely correct.
