Quote of the Day: debating immigration

From John Podhoretz, today on The Corner:
Derb [John Derbyshire] compares illegals to bank robbers and yesterday called them "interlopers." Polipundit, host of the eponymous site, calls them "invaders." I don't understand how, with this kind of talk on our side and the "give them all immediate citizenship" talk by the marchers, there can be any kind of conversation on this subject that can lead to any kind of working political consensus. The radicalization of the rhetoric on both sides seems designed to make any kind of rational discourse impossible.
My thoughts exactly.

UPDATE: I got just a few posts higher on the Corner, and Andy McCarthy, whom I respect tremendously, makes some good points in response.
