George Will: US Should Welcome Central American Children

Columnist George Will has long been an advocate for immigration reform, but today on Fox News Sunday, he specifically addressed the Central American children and said that the US should welcome them in with open arms.  As he told host Chris Wallace:

We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to America, you’re going to go to school and get a job and become Americans.  We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county. The idea that we can’t assimilate these eight-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous.

“We can handle this problem, is what I’m saying.  We’ve handled what Emma Lazarus famously called ‘the wretched refuse of your teeming shores’ a long time ago and a lot more people than this.
