    recognizes that the US, like all nations, has a sovereign right to control its borders, then Republicans should jump on board in a hurry and accept the fact that all of those undocumented workers came over more or less at our invitation.  Failure to crack down on employers or to otherwise get serious about all of the opportunity seekers we drew over the border should be viewed as an admission that the real law was no longer what had been put on the books.  Acting as if it were truly the law of the land in that period is unfair to the people who took our invitation and disruptive to the nation and its economy.  

    Good Republican ethics ought to allow for that.
