I read one of your recent opinion columns discussing
Ruben Navarrette`s assertion that Hispanics will inevitably be
a majority in the US. [Email
Navarrette] I agreed with
much of your critique of his position.
However, please realize that immigration is not a
"left vs. right"
issue. Are you aware that President Obama has
deported more illegals per month than George
Bush did? Are you aware that Republican-leaning,
corporate lobbying groups such as the US Chamber of Commerce favor
unregulated immigration? [Vdare.com
note: Yes, we`re
very aware of this.]
I am a liberal Democrat and I
favor strict immigration controls. I do not want
the US to become a Hispanic nation. I favor a
moderate stream of legal immigration, not the deluge of
illegals from Mexico that we have had for the past
benefit the most from an
unending influx of cheap labor are business owners, not
the poor. These same business owners are able to
keep their profits, while placing the costs of the
chaotic influx of immigration on to the public
sector. Lawmakers from both parties, Republicans and
Democrats, are to blame for the current state of
current politics, the immigration issue
becoming a left vs. right debate, even
within the Republican Party. But the
reader is right that both parties are guilty.
Still one of my favorite
“IN AMERICA, WE have a two-party system,"
Republican congressional staffer is supposed to have
told a visiting group of Russian legislators some years
ago. "There is the stupid party. And there is the
evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid
He added: "Periodically, the two parties get together and do something
both stupid and evil. This is called—bipartisanship."
