There’ll never be an honest debate about immigration until all sides agree that there is a difference between legal and illegal immigration.
For example, a couple of days ago, Bloomberg View columnist Joe Nocera dropped this hot take on U.S. immigration:
30 percent of MLB players are immigrants, most of whom have not become US citizens. Given ICE’s current obsession, fully expect them to raid spring training camps when players start reporting next month. They’re taking jobs away from Americans, after all.

Who wants to tell him?
Hi stupid. You can be here legally, and not be a citizen. Is that too hard for you? https://t.co/hAJSYXHhF4

This stupidity is what happens when you lose the ability to distinguish legal immigrants from illegal immigrants. https://t.co/25aFAHRHxG

Why do these idiots leave off the important part
Legal vs illegal immigrants
They must think liberals are stupid because conservatives don’t fall for that. https://t.co/ohpq7CFUML

Here’s our prediction: expect Americans this summer to cheer on those players whose talents brought them to this country.
