The economists may see the vast human tide as an army of much-needed hotel maids and farm workers and nurses and plumbers, but to assume that everyone on the planet sees themselves as primarily an economic entity is complacent and (post-Sept. 11) obtusely deluded.The deluded one is Mark Steyn. Nurses are brought to the US LEGALLY in the thousands every year. There are over 300,000 Filipino born nurses working abroad, mostly in the US, alone. Many Filipino born legal alien nurses, my sister-in-law for example, have since become US citizens.
Steyn has proved his ignorance once again. He doesn't know a legal alein from an illegal or that Florida isn't part of the Caribbean. Why does any reputable publication print this man's writings when he so obviously a complete idiot? I mean how hard is it to do a google search.
