Even some of my more fair-minded and liberal acquaintances betray a slightly weird streak of nativism when the topic of amnesty for illegals comes up.Straw man up, straw man down. That’s a mighty big ‘if’. U.S. immigration law was not written by WASPs to discriminate against people of any skin color and doesn’t. Now what’s your excuse Steve?
"You wanna reward people for breaking the law?" they ask, and I say, "If the law was written by WASPs to discriminate against dark-skinned people, then frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn who breaks it."
Update: A reader sends this picture from yesterday’s illegal immigrant protest march, along with these comments:
Hart’s post title on Blue Jersey: Immigrant Amnesty: Si se puede
Protest poster: Si se puede – The Workers Struggle Has No Borders (With picture of the communist Che Guevara)
Coincidence, I don’t think so.
