    David, do you conclude as I do from the startling figure you report here, that the tiny increases of low skilled “guest worker” and highly educated H-1B visas discussed by the Gang of 8 fall so far short of the inflow that unauthorized immigration will continue at essentially the same rate after reform is enacted? And that the only way to stop unauthorized immigration is to allow nonviolent working immigrants to come legally? That is, ALL of them – that is, removing numerical limits? Which economists like Nowrasteh and Bier say would bless our economy? And that the “political reality” enshrouding the 8 is colliding with real Reality, and ultimately Reality always wins? Do you think the 8 understand this? Is there a way to inform them?
