Give us those yearning to breathe free

Posted By on Sun, Sep 26, 2010 at 8:56 AM

This one's for Times publisher Alan Leveritt: Ezra Klein in the Washington Post. It begins:

I have a plan that will raise wages, lower prices, increase the nation's stock of scientists and engineers, and maybe even create the next Google. Better yet, this plan won't cost the government a dime. In fact, it'll save money. A lot of money. But few politicians are going to want to touch it.

Here's the plan: More immigration. A pathway to legal status for undocumented immigrants. And a recognition that immigration policy is economic policy and needs to be thought of as such.

See what I meant about politicians not liking it?
