Abortion = Illegal Immigration?

The Associated Press reports on the rather strange conclusion reached by Missouri's House Special Committee on Immigration Reform:
A Republican-led legislative panel claims in a new report on illegal immigration that abortion is partly to blame because it is causing a shortage of American workers.

... statements about abortion, welfare policies and a recommendation to abolish income taxes in favor of sales taxes were inserted into the immigration report by the committee chairman, Rep. Ed Emery.

All six Democrats on the panel refused to sign the report. Some of them called the abortion assertion ridiculous and embarrassing.

“There's a lot of editorial comment there that I couldn't really stomach,” Rep. Trent Skaggs said Monday. “To be honest, I think it's a little delusional.”

All 10 Republican committee members signed the report, though one of them, Rep. Billy Pat Wright, said Monday he didn't recall it connecting abortion and illegal immigration.
Who knows if he even bothered to read it?
