Dodging Immigration's Truths

Dodging Immigration's Truths: "On the one side will be older baby boomers demanding all their federal retirement benefits. On the other will be an expanding population of younger and poorer Hispanics -- immigrants, their children and grandchildren -- increasingly resentful of their rising taxes that subsidize often-wealthier and unrelated baby boomers."
Samuelson in USN&WR.

If immigation of Mexican hordes will lead to a tax revolt, it sounds like a great idea. Somehow, however, I doubt it. I would guess that it will lead to higher taxes (like everything else).
