Managing Differences

posted on

From the Supreme Court Case that gave the nod to racial preferences in higher education, comes George Leef‘s assessment of the ruling in The Freeman. “When it comes to universities,” said Leef, “student admissions can’t just be left up to a simple rule like ‘admit the academically best students possible.’ Instead, social interventionists delight in trying to engineer a student body that is ‘diverse’ and have convinced themselves that doing so is both noble and immensely beneficial.” The simple, commonsense logic here could easily be applied to the illegal immigration problem recently noticed by decision makers in America. There’s a good example in Charlotte. Giving local law enforcement officials the authority to identify, capture, and deport illegal immigrants has paid dividends throughout the city and across the county.  It’s a remarkable and sure to be reused program, as Paul Chesser writes in the American Spectator.
