In the early 20th century we had Irish, Jewish, Italian, Scandinavian, and Asian immigrants. Most of their descendants are net taxpayers, and the grandsons of the Jewish and Asian immigrants are doctors and engineers. We are not going to get a large number of doctors and engineers out of the children of Mexican immigrants, most of whom don’t graduate high school. We are going to get barrios, colonias, and participants in the Food Stamp Program.
