The rats have a pragmatic will to live, the lemmings seal their fate in self-deception.Lemmings aren't actually suicidal.

Inflammatory as it's been, the debate over unaccompanied Central-American children crossing the U.S. border is only the warm-up for an approaching immigration confrontation with even greater stakes.
