Best comment I read this week

Via Greg Mankiw's blog, we turn the mike over to
Lancelot, fourth comment down:

"Sorry, immigration foes, you'll have to stop hiding behind the 'externalities' canard. The real reason people oppose immigration is 'no poverty in my backyard.' We want to blindfold ourselves to the existence of human suffering, even if it means exacerbating it. It is a deeply immoral point of view."

I bet Greg(the Utilitarian), Greg(the Libertarian) and Greg(the Moralist) could all agree on that point!
