- The first episode of KLRU's Austin Now's three-part series on immigration is available here online.
- From ImmigrationProf Blog, read Bill O. Hing's essay on the proposed border fence, The 700-Mile Death Trap.
- Finally, everyone should read Manhattan Institute fellow Tamar Jacoby's stat-filled article from Foreign Affairs. Like Benders' Dan Kowalski, Jacoby identifies the main "paradox" that must be confronted to actually solve immigration:
"The best way to regain control is not to crack down but to liberalize - to expand quotas, with a guest-worker program or some other method, until they line up with labor needs. The analogy is Prohibition: an unrealistic ban on alcohol was all but impossible to enforce. Realistic limits, in contrast, are relatively easy to implement."
