The contrast between the Reagan worship and the anti-immigrant stance which are the twin hearts of the current Republican party is amusing. I don't give Saint Ronnie credit for much, but the immigration reforms and, yes, AMNESTY, that were passed under his rule were pretty awesome. This Statue of Liberty country closed the border for many decades, and Reagan opened them up again. Not that our immigration system is perfect. It's a total mess. But letting people in again was a great thing.
