Ruben Navarette on Immigration on CNN

Ruben Navarrette, syndicated columnist, has a special on the CNN website thatr synthezies his views on immigration.

It starts:

Some longtime readers insist they have detected a leftward drift whenever I write about illegal immigration. They're wrong. But I can see how they might get that impression in a political climate that is increasingly all or nothing, with little room for nuance.

Navarette is an interesting character.  A graduate of Harvard (and author of the book A Darker Shade of Crimson), he endorses the calls for immigrants to learn English (and thus assimlate) but also criticizes the "close the borders" restrictionists.

Ruben, your article on Obama's immigration reform
was well written. The one term many people use in
wanting to send illegal people who have US born children
back to their home country is breaking up families.
Children of parents who move to any new residence
(a new state, country etc.) move as a family. Their
children don't have to stay behind and be separated
just because they are now US citizens.
You are letting the tail wag the dog.
