post on illegal immigration over at the Becker-Posner blog. I agree with much of what he says. Illegal immigration as it stands now is almost unpreventable. The combination of large borders, a poor country bordering us, US companies willing to hire illegals, and government benefits readily available over here make stopping illegal immigration very hard. Personally I'm in favor of one of the things he suggests. Let people immigrate if they want, but deny them government handouts until they go through the proper channels. And maybe concurrently cut down on the current entitlement system to force more people to work. Then again, that's so politically unpopular it'll never happen. Oh, well.
