Economic Man!

Source: CFR

I could fisk this, I could mock this but I would rather simply post it and allow you to bask in the pure economic evil of this individual. This comes from a Council on Foreign relations paper entitled "The Economic Logic of Illegal Immigration."
it is critical not to lose sight of the fact that illegal immigration has a clear economic logic: It provides U.S. businesses with the types of workers they want, when they want them, and where they want them. If policy reform succeeds in making U.S. illegal immigrants more like legal immigrants, in terms of their skills, timing of arrival, and occupational mobility, it is likely to lower rather than raise national welfare. In their efforts to gain control over illegal immigration, Congress and the administration need to be cautious that the economic costs do not outstrip the putative benefits.
Let me know what you think.
