The World's Largest Gated Community

From OpinionJournal:

Tom Tancredo has done everyone a favor by stating plainly the immigration rejectionists' endgame--turn the United States into the world's largest gated community. The House took a step in that direction this month by passing another immigration "reform" bill heavy with border control and business harassment and light on anything that will work in the real world.

For the past two decades, border enforcement has been the main focus of immigration policy; by any measure, the results are pitiful. According to the Migration Policy Institute, "The number of unauthorized migrants in the United States has risen to almost 11 million from about four million over the past 20 years, despite a 519% increase in funding and a 221% increase in staffing for border patrol programs."

I bet most of the Wall Street Journal's editorial staff live safely behind gated communities with private security of one sort or another. It is easy for the elites who don't have to watch their neighborhoods destroyed, their schools wrecked and the crime rate sky-rocketing to be in favor of open borders. They are safely insulated from its ill effects.

Many of the rest of us like the idea of living in a gated community and can't wait to start enjoying the safety that it would provide.
