Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

TUCSON SHOOTER TIED TO ANTI-IMMGIRATION GROUP

Rate this Entry

Still much to learn about Mr. Loughner, but if anti-immigration hate drove this disturbed young man to shoot 20 people, it should give pause to the extremists who have been wratcheting up the anti-Latino, anti-immigrant rhetoric over the last few years. Perhaps this tragedy will be viewed historically as a turning point where Americans began to come together to civilly address our immigration system and come up with a long term strategy that we can all live with.


UPDATE: The Washington Post is reporting that DHS is now denying it has information showing the link. The paper is speculating, however, that DHS officials may have informally told Fox News about the possible connection.

    I sure hope they link him to the anti-immigration white skin worshipping pagans like Jared Taylor.

    I guess it is not a surprise for anyone here...

    I do not doubt that he may have subscribed to many issues on the extreme, however none of the victims were immigrants so he may have just hated the world and everything in it.....

    AV - The target was Congresswoman Giffords and anti-immigrant groups were vocally opposing her during the recent campaign. We don't know if this was the motive, but the fact that the victims weren't immigrants is probably irrelevant. Obviously, we're all just speculating right now. The fact that the perpetrator is alive and can talk will presumably lead to answers (though he sounds completely nuts so who knows?).

    I am not surprised. If the feds dig deeper, they may find anti-immigrant rant of Mr. Loughner in many message boards. He reminds me of a guy who tried to spew venom in a number of forums including this one (I guess Greg banned him )against H1 professionals. Antis keep breeding Loughners with their mindless hate messages

    More like Tunnel Rat, the disgruntled IT/programmer. He too had cross hairs on the heads of some people like Bill Gates and Indians of significant importance on his website.

    Britannicus pretty much just copy and pastes all over the net. TR was insinuating violence and assassination.

    I wonder if the FBI ever investigated him. I am sure some of our Indian friends made it known to the proper authorities. Just wasn't sure if he ever was taken serious by the authorities.

    Just googled and I see that TR/IT Grunt's site is still active and still doing the cross hairs to the head of people. Just means the authorities don't rally care. Maybe they want to wait for something similar in AZ to happen first or maybe it's because the cross hairs involves mostly Indians.

    I agree with the Sheriff of Pima County. He's not politicizing - he's just telling what he thinks is the real cause. It is obviously related to the extreme rhetorics. I know speaker Boehner and McConnell knows this too but just unwilling to admit it publicly. They need to send an internal memo to all Republicans (specially Palin) to tone it down.

    Britannicus and his cut and paste job was irritating at best but this guy who called himself some rat or something similar sounded more like Loughner; full of lunatic rage, hatred and looked like a perfect deranged specimen ready to explode.
