'The Basic Goal Is to Promote the Free Flow of Labor into the USA'

By Mark Krikorian on July 28, 2009

Jim Robb of Numbers USA has some fun with the notes (taken by a participant who grew a conscience) of a closed-door meeting of open-borders lobbyists. It was organized by amnesty czarina Tamar Jacoby, who's the source of the title of this post. None of it's all that surprising — rope-selling businessmen complaining that even in this econony they need more cheap labor. One thing that was notable was that right after lefty wonk Simon Rosenberg said "Passing CIR [amnesty and increased immigration] will help Democrats lock in the Hispanic vote," Grover Norquist chimed in to agree that we need amnesty and more immigration. Who's side is he on?
