Immigration IS a Social Issue

December 13, 2007

Ethics Daily ran my latest column today, which is entitled "Immigration IS a Social Issue." It critiques a recent comment by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney that immigration is an economic issue instead of a social one. In the piece I consider the implications of viewing immigration economically versus viewing it socially through discussion of three incidents involving illegal immigrants. I hope the piece sparks some thinking about this divisive but important topic.
