Liberals used to be anti-immigration

Jerry Kammer writes a NY Times op-ed:
I’m a Liberal Who Thinks Immigration Must Be Restricted

Immigration can invigorate the country. But when it is poorly managed, it can cause social division — just as it’s doing right now.
He makes these points:

Until recently, liberals favored immigration restrictions.
The Democrat Party is an open borders party now.
Republican allies, such as the Chamber of Commerce, have sold us out on this issue.
Ronald Reagan sought a reasonable compromise, but it was sabotaged.
Only the Klu Klux Klan was saying ‘America for Americans’.

He is right, but does not go far enough. We are headed for disaster, and Pres. Trump is just slowing it down. Trump is seeking reasonable compromises, but the Democrat Party and a lot of the Republicans have become seriously anti-American.
