    I generally agree with Mr. Krauthammer but I have always held that market dynamics argues against trying to raise a family on minimum wage, regardless how high it is. As Mr. Saltsman posits, the best way to help a poor family is to allow the free exchange of labor, unfettered by excessive regulation.
    The minimum wage argument is a distraction. The real discussion should be on control of our borders and the consequence of personal choice. There are no simplistic, single-faceted solutions. There are systemic and complex approaches but they require non-self-serving dialogue between parties.
