Tony Snow: Immigration debate needs common sense

Here are some thought-provoking words from Tony Snow. I am not able to verify the statistics, and I keep hearing conflicting numbers from both sides of the spectrum, but this piece provides needed common sense. Read the full article over at TownHall.com.
Rather than panicking, the political class might want to take a deep breath and attempt a little common sense. Virtually everyone agrees that we need to secure our borders, deport lawbreakers and slackers among the illegal-immigrant population, and revitalize the notion of citizenship by insisting that prospective citizens master the English language and the fundaments of American history and culture.

The Statue of Liberty symbolizes America's affection for the world's tired and poor, the "huddled masses yearning to breathe free." Before someone razes Lady Liberty and decides to erect a wall to "protect" America from the world, shouldn't we at least spend a little time trying to get our facts straight?
