This coming Wednesday, the House subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship, will hold a hearing oddly entitled "Why Don't They Just Get in Line? Barriers to Legal Immigration." You may think this is a waste of time and certainly I forgive the sentiment. However, there is always opportunity to learn even in the darkest of times. On paper, Democrats holding a committee hearing to rebut a strawman rhetorical question they asked themselves is an excellent microcosm of how Democratic leadership has functioned in the majority this year, but it does provide some space for an actual discussion about how many legal ways aliens can enter the United States.
