Coordination Between CATO, ATR, and Others

Breitbart unearths some emails showing some coordination between CATO, Americans for Tax Reform, and others to counter skepticism about the Gang of Eight immigration bill after last week's events in Boston.


  1. Hi Mr. Bauer,
    How does the Gang of Eight bill help us figure out who is in this country? If there are bad guys here illegally, will they pay $500 to register, and thereby draw attention to themselves? More generally, what will we do with all the people who decline to register for amnesty? Surely we can't deport them all?

  2. I liked a recent comment by Ramesh Ponnuru in NRO's Corner, because it showed that one can support the idea of amnesty (as I do), while opposing the Gang of Eight bill for many other reasons. My advice for the Senate is a saying: Antes que te cases, mira lo que haces.

  3. Mr. Bauer,
    We don't need to pass the Eight's enormity in order to help Gaby Pacheco who tearfully testified before the Senate Committee yesterday: She was brought to the U.S. at the age of 7. All we need to do is to grant immediate permanent residency for those people already enrolled in the Obama Administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, in return for immediate e-Verify-cation of all new employees in the U.S.
