One right - David Bacon at "In These Times" where he explodes 8 myths about immigration. Part of the problem here is 20 years of NAFTA.
The other wrong - Charles Krauthammer in the Washington Post. Krauthammer is often wrong, but he is not usually heartless. He writes:
Why do they come? The administration pretends it’s because of violence and poverty.
Nonsense. When has there not been violence and poverty in Central America?
But, maybe the violence and the poverty have gotten worse? Does he really think anything but extreme circumstances would cause parents to send their children north?
