Wisdom with bushy eyebrows.

Michael Dukakis co-wrote a New York Times editorial (Raise Wages, Not Walls) that exposes the cognitive dissonance over GOP immigration reform.

Curiously, most members of Congress who take a hard line on immigration also strongly oppose increasing the minimum wage, claiming it will hurt businesses and reduce jobs. For some reason, they don’t seem eager to acknowledge that many of the jobs they claim to hold dear are held by the same illegal immigrants they are trying to deport.
