Our freeways are clogged, public services are stretched thin, schools are overcrowded and the once prized University of California system is taking a dive, and yet The Times and the senators pushing the so-called immigration reform bill are acting as if the United States actually needs more immigrants.
The Times keeps this hype at a fevered pitch. The TV campaigns are relentless.
I wish everyone, especially California's Democratic Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, would take a moment and think this through.
How will admitting more people who will put further strain on our public services enhance our quality of life?
