I don't suppose any of these intellectual titans actually sponsor an immigrant themselves. In fact, I'm willing to wager that I have personally done more for the children of Guatemala or Uganda than the total collection of these clueless anarchist Bolsheviks that embarrassed themselves for the sake of "open borders" or "a land without borders."
