    The PH section had factual issues - scabies is NOT 'just a rash' and TB most certainly is serious - and difficult to treat especially with a migrant population. That might just be an unfamiliarity with the topic material so it might be isolated to that section.

    I'll get back to this when I've gotten up to speed.
    I wouldn't be surprised if there were more problems with the arguments advanced in the piece, and I look forward to when you've had the opportunity to analyze it more completely.

    This part was salient:
    Edward Schumacher-Matos found that while immigrant children remain high school drop outs, they will cost the state an annual $89,000. However if provided education, that same child will contribute a net $105,000.
    It feels dirty considering people in economic terms, in light of who they consider. I maintain that the other points would justify supporting this immigration even if this were not the case. However, it's always nice to turn talking points on their head.

    A rather long essay with a number of points to analyze. After an admittedly cursory reading, Teallaura had some sharp criticisms for the public health section, but didn't single anything else out. I'd be interested on any intelligent commentary on the points it makes.

    Darth Executor and Epoetker are not welcome in this thread.
