Carr: Thank Teddy for steady flow of illegals into U.S.
I blame Ted Kennedy for the unprecedented national disaster that is illegal immigration into the United States.He isn’t solely to blame for this catastrophe, but Ted Kennedy was the frontman for the legislation that opened the floodgates — the Immigration Reform Act of 1965.Until 1965, the U.S. had a functioning, sane immigration policy. No. 1, we enforced the laws. No. 2, the law was to only accept immigrants who would not become burdens to the taxpayers, and who wanted to assimilate. There was no welfare for aliens — legal or illegal.
