Reason on Rand and Illegal Immigrants

Here's a great post on Reason.com by Shikha Dalmia about illegal immigrant, Ayn Rand, and today's anti-immigrant Republicans.  Here's an excerpt: Ayn Rand

As a vehement anti-Bolshevist, she knew that she would die waiting in line if she applied for permission to permanently relocate to America, although that’s exactly what she intended to do.

She convinced an American visa officer that she had a fianc√© waiting for her in Russia whom she intended to marry after a six-month visit with her relatives in Chicago.
