Reason.TV: Drew Carey Speaks on Immigration Issue - VIDEO

Comedian Drew Carey currently hosts a series of mini-documentaries called The Drew Carey Project on Reason.Tv, a new online project of the Reason Foundation. Here's a recent video the Project produced on the immigration issue.



As soccer superstar David Beckham kicks off the Los Angeles Galaxy's 2008 season, Drew Carey asks what this says about immigration in the U.S. in a new reason.tv video.

While workers from Mexico draw the ire and fiery rhetoric of anti-immigration forces, there was no outrage or concern when the English-speaking soccer hero brought his family and curling free kicks to America.

"I think we should welcome all peaceful people to our country,” says Drew Carey. "They get to the pursue the 'American Dream' and we get to benefit from all the wonderful things that immigrants bring to our country—like good old fashioned soccer. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me."1
