Ready for the world’s shortest column on illegal immigration? The late Sonny Bono, a Republican congressman from California once said, “What’s to debate? It’s illegal.”

I tip my cap to Stacy McCain of the Washington Times for that quote.

Of course, the boss expects a little longer interpretation of the news than that.

It is not like Bono was a callous millionaire. His parents were poor Sicilian immigrants. He waited tables, worked in construction and drove a truck before leaving Detroit for Hollywood.

Bono understood the issue better than Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., who has been pushing immigration “reform” for more than 40 years now.

Kennedy was behind the 1965 immigration reform act, which eliminated the national origins quotas. (link)
