On the subject of neocon columnist Jennifer Rubin’s expressed wish that “half the world” come to America, Paul K. writes:
Jennifer Rubin claims that in the halcyon, pre-1921 days, anyone who was “not a criminal or a cretin” was welcome in America (she left out those with infectious diseases). She overlooks the fact that without the welfare system that exists now, immigrants had to make it on their own. Some forty percent were unable to do so and returned to Europe—would that that were true today!
