    "Gov. Rick Perry's foray into compassionate conservatism — his assertion that critics of in-state tuition subsidies don't "have a heart" — has shed light on the fact that too much of the immigration debate is based on weepy sentimentality. We need to move beyond Oprah-fied storytelling about your grandma from Minsk and instead focus on reality, with all its trade-offs and competing values."
