16. I think any Democrat could win by going a bit to the right on immigration.

 

It's practically Democratic heresy to say we don't welcome immigrants, but a lot of people, in fact, don't welcome illegal immigrants. For many it isn't about racism, but about competition for low skilled jobs. We have a huge underground economy where illegal immigrants work for low wages in poor conditions. A few simple fixes would greatly reduce the underground economy and provide more opportunities for low skill workers.

But we fail to acknowledge the economic issue and so we paint everyone who wants stricter curbs on immigration as racists and drive them straight into the arms of Trump.

Flame away if you must, but the issue is there.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren
