Immigration-expansionist Sen. Jeff Flake revealed today in the New York Times that illegal immigration and reliance on foreign labor was an integral part of his childhood experience.
He recounts a touching relationship growing up with one illegal worker and argues that America needs more immigrants like him who know little English and have little education. I don't doubt Sen. Flake's heart-felt good will toward the foreign workers on the family ranch. But personal sentimentality alone does not make for a just or rational public policy. The RAISE Act does.
