A nomenclature note: in Europe the term is "migrants"; in the US it is "illegals", or, only slightly less horribly, "illegal immigrants". (I need not point out to you, gentle Outside Counsel reader, that defining someone by their status is dehumanizing and wrong-- you already understand that this is why it is said that way.) Another thought: as a general proposition economies that don't grow stagnate and decline. What Europe has here is an opportunity. It's population has been declining for the past three or four generations. Questions of cultural identity aside (whatever "cultural identity" means) it is being presented with the solution.
