Immigration

Hugh Hewitt is writing on immigration, suggesting it has the power to wreck the Republican Party. I agree and think that it is like the Irish question in the nineteenth and twentieth century for British politicians. Someone will have to deal with it and do the obvious things (Hugh suggests some), but it is not clear that this person will and his party will not be punished regardless. I believe a majority of Americans hate all the options, irrational but there you are.I tend to be (slightly) pro-immigration for simple demographic reasons. Does anyone believe our population level can be sustained without some large-scale immigration? Do we really want to become Japan or a dying Italy? I am curious to know what Hugh would think of this problem.
