Rupert Murdoch, open borders crusader

Immigration activists might know this, but the Murdoch hook is obviously the best thing Bloomberg has going for this project.

An immigration restrictionist chart at Mint.com

One problem: Because the citations are lumped at the bottom, not graph-for-graph, it's unclear which numbers are real and which have been circulated in flawed anti-immigration e-mails and web sites. I've asked the company about this and will post a response if/when I get it.

Defending Michael Cannon

Hard to get more obvious than that -- Kurokawa, who worked at Cato with Cannon before joining the Winston Group, was making the sort of joke liberals (who see eye to eye with most Cato scholars on this issue) make at the expense of immigration obsessives. But Cannon, in re-tweeting her, clipped off "like, really?" while adding his own joke: "I hear they're very absorbent." You have to put on blinders to miss the fact that Cannon is joking about what he sees as craziness in Louisiana.

Rand Paul: Back and talking to Russian TV

Liberal sites are hitting Paul for saying the children of illegal immigrants should not automatically gain U.S. citizenship. I don't think Paul or his father have ever been shy about their problem with the interpretation of the 14th Amendment on that issue, but I suppose this demonstrates Paul's Palin-like ability to generate fervid commentary from liberals even in soft interviews.

Minuteman strategist: 'We have to put Mr. Brooks in the best position to win'

I have been reading with great interest about your potential race for Congress in the next election cycle. As someone who has been the Campaign Manager in Tennessee races for Congress in both the 7th and 9th Congressional Districts (Marsha Blackburn’s first race in 2002 and Mark White’s first in 2006) I wanted to let you know I am interested in your race as well.

Senate GOP: Border troops could lead to immigration compromise

This is basically where hopeful immigration reform advocates have thought the issue was going -- aggressive action from the White House, a quieter border, and then an immigration compromise.
