Minnesota`s Governor Tim Pawlenty, one of the more interesting
politicians around, is showing some signs of sensitivity to America`s immigration disaster:
Declaring the nation`s immigration system as "bordering on chaotic," Gov. Tim Pawlenty went to Worthington, Minn., Tuesday ...Worthington, Pawlenty said, is a flashpoint for tensions over illegal immigration as an influx of foreign workers, both documented and undocumented, has put the southwestern Minnesota city of 11,300 in the state`s top five for racial diversity.

Of course, the key questions are: is he in favor of restriction or facilitation
? What about birthright ctizenship?
He did say:
"It`s not appropriate to say that it doesn`t matter whether it`s legal or illegal as long as it`s cheap,"
There it is. Will Gov. Pawlenty go with the interests of his fellow citizens
? Or powerful employer lobbies?
Is he a White House hack?
That is the question.
