Immigration realities

Here's a link to the Register's editorial on the recent spate of immigration raids. Our perspective is somewhat different than what most conventional thinkers would suggest. Money quote:

"It will probably be a long time, if ever, before a consensus emerges around our editorial position, that the quotas for immigrants are too low, and the best approach would be to allow anybody who wants to come to immigrate (except terrorists and those with infectious diseases), but making it clear that they are not eligible for any government benefits until they have lived, worked and paid taxes here for a reasonable period of time.
"But we keep hoping."
