On immigration, Irish show the way


Voters in Ireland approved a plan to do away with a constitutional provision granting automatic citizenship to any child born in Ireland (Page 12A, June 13). The government had urged approval because it felt that Ireland has become a destination for pregnant women who immigrate before giving birth so their children will be eligible for European Union residence and welfare benefits. Sound familiar?

Oh, that we had a government that would look out for its own people and not cater to small special-interest groups. It's time to change some of our immigration policies.
