ABSTRACT
The article offers observations on illegal immigration in the United States. It considers that Europe's method of dealing with immigrants has failed and produced radicalism. It offers an explanation for the absence of terror attacks in post-9/11 America. The U.S. problem with illegal-immigrant flows, largely from Mexico, is examined. The author questions how Americans want to treat those who are already in the U.S., working and living with them, and suggests that immigrants need some home, and some reasonable path to becoming Americans.
