Immigration Reform II

This July 4th, I read the Declaration of Independence it didn't strike me at the time but one of the reasons we broke away from England seems a bit apropos regarding immigration:

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

Programs for 'temporary workers' with long stays in the US and no path to citizenship isn't exactly the same thing, but it rhymes. We need to do better than that.
