Ruben Navarrette, Jr. always has something interesting to say about immigration and in a piece he's written for CNN, he's highlighted the contradiction in American's attitudes toward illegal immigration - we are against illegal immigration except to the extent we are not. Some of the places that are pushing the harshest anti-immigration laws seem to have the greatest dependence on those workers and their politicians are the most vocal in opposing any legislation to legalize the workers already here or push through a guest worker program.
