MARK STEYN: It's a matter of public policy which we should be able to discuss rationally. For example, this couple have been illegally in the United States for 12 years and they have five children. So simply if you are playing the odds you've got roughly, whenever you pull them over you've got roughly a 50/50 chance of them being pregnant. That's actually very demographically revealing of where California is headed. Two people who shouldn't be in the country have nevertheless had five anchor babies in a country where the fertility rate is 1.75 children per couple. So actually this is California's future and it is actually a snapshot of where this insane sentimentalization of public policy has got us. When they say she is living a nightmare, she is living a dream. She's been here for 12 years, had five children at public expense, that your viewers, assuming for the sake of argument that there are any legitimate U.S. Citizens and lawful residents remaining in the country, that your viewers have paid for. So that's the nightmare she is living. She's had five children at public expense, married to an illegal husband who apparently works for a company that makes bouncy castles for children's parties and actually the only people who need bouncy castles for children's parties are families like this one, which have had five anchor babies.
