Losing Immigration Distinctions

Losing Immigration Distinctions

There are 2 comments on the www.nationalreview.com story from Aug 30, 2011, titled Losing Immigration Distinctions. In it, www.nationalreview.com reports that:

The New York Time s claims that "waves of anti-immigrant hostility have made many in this country forget who and what we are," in an editorial modestly comparing Alabama's recently-enacted penalties against illegal immigrants and their employers to the Fugitive Slave Act.

I have never met a legal immigrant from a country other than Mexico who does not strenuously oppose illegal immigration (and indeed I know at least one naturalized Mexican resident of California who is just as vociferously against the illegal flow across the southern border). Are such legal immigrants “anti-immigrant”? Or are they against illegal immigration — a distinction which the illegal-alien lobby works incessantly to erase. If anyone would know what this country stands for, it should be legal immigrants, who have gone through the demanding process of gaining legal residency here. And they understand that what sets the U.S. apart is the rule of law — as well as how fragile that rule of law is. Legal Iranians, Egyptians, Columbians, and Nigerians oppose illegal entry not because they are xenophobic; they oppose illegal aliens because of their behavior — deliberately breaking the law as their first act upon entering the country.

So typical of the NYT, that their reporter and editorial staff can't distinguish between ILLEGALS and legal immigrants. People aren't anti-immigrant. The majority of the US are ANTI-ILLEGAL ALIENS/INVADERS. And these people have college educations but can't make that distinction? Sounds like the same clowns on the Obama administration and the lead clown, Obama.
