That's my thought on the immigration compromise some Christian conservatives are pushing.
For me, the deal-killer is the elimination of birthright citizenship. This is a crucial difference that sets us apart from the rest of the world. Eliminating this in favor of some neo-blood and soil approach like Buchanan's would lead to bigger problems (see the situation in Paris) than it would solve.
We've always held that anyone could become an American. Turning our backs on that is not only stupid, it is wrong. Doubly so since no child can pick their parents.
Conservatives deserve credit for at least being willing to discuss a compromise, but this is the wrong one.
