A twentysomething writer at Vox, Dylan Matthews, has sternly beratedillustrious liberal commentator Peter Beinart because Beinart suggested that the Democratic Party should change its policies of celebrating mass illegal immigration and making little effort to encourage illegal immigrants to assimilate themselves into American culture.
Beinart’s lengthy article, published at The Atlantic, is entitled “How the Democrats Lost Their Way on Immigration.”
“Prominent liberals” have long “supported a path to citizenship for the undocumented,” Beinart writes. At the same time, such liberals have also — until recently — “routinely asserted that low-skilled immigrants depressed the wages of low-skilled American workers and strained America’s welfare state.”
