distinguishing between immigration and naturalization!

I hadn't thought through this possibility from Ryan McMaken-- naturalization vs. immigration. We might let you in, but that doesn't mean we need to figure out a path for citizenship for you, under certain conditions.

It's probably too difficult to add it to our dinner conversations, such as they are, on immigration. (At first, I was thought that the author was going to generalize this to American citizens who could trade their citizenship for benefits. Really provocative!) 

But would this work-- happily for our handful of liberals and conservatives, tolerably as a compromise for the larger number of immigration liberals and immigration conservatives, and a nice move forward for the vast set of voters who hang out in the middle on this issue?
