"Listening to discussions of immigration laws and proposals to reform them is like listening to something out of 'Alice in Wonderland.'
"Immigration laws are the only laws that are discussed in terms of how to help people who break them.
One of the big problems that those who are pushing 'comprehensive immigration reform' want solved is how to help people who came here illegally and are now 'living in the shadows' as a result.
"What about embezzlers or burglars who are 'living in the shadows' in fear that someone will discover their crimes? Why not 'reform' the laws against embezzlement or burglary, so that such people can also come out of the shadows?" — Thomas Sowell
