Reagan supported illegal immigration

Interesting article from Newsweek on Reagan-esque views on immigration.

It makes one wonder about the illegal-alien fuss. Are great numbers of our unemployed really victims of the illegal-alien invasion or are those illegal tourists actually doing work our own people won’t do? One thing is certain in this hungry world: no regulation or law should be allowed if it results in crops rotting in the fields for lack of harvesters.

Six states that have the largest inflow of illegal immigrants — New York, California, Illinois, Texas, Florida, and Arizona — also have unusually low employment rates. Most of them are below the national unemployment rate of 4.5%.
