In a piece titled Sanctuary Was a Lovely Word. Then the G.O.P. Got Hold of It, Clyde Haberman, the Times`s NYC columnist [Email him] writes:
When they finally got down to business, after being serenaded by a guitarist on YouTube, it took the Republican presidential candidates 11 1/2 minutes Wednesday night for one of them to acknowledge that illegal immigrants are human beings.
Quite. And it would take longer than that, during a Democratic debate for candidates to admit that they were criminals. But that`s by the way—"Sanctuary" may be a lovely word, but it`s frequently an extremely ugly thing, and its other name is "corruption."
