  1. Roger Algase's Avatar
    With regard to a news report that the chancellor of the University of California at Berkeley is blaming Arizona's anti-immigrant law for the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords, I agree that many of us who support immigration would like to blame this law for everything from the Tucson shooting to earthquakes in Indonesia and floods in Australia.

    It is also true that when poisonous hatred of any type is in the air, there is always a chance that it may give someone the idea to commit violence against someone else, for whatever reason, particularly if the perpetrator is mentally disturbed.

    But, obnoxious as the Arizona immigration law is, there is simply no evidence for assuming that it was a proximate cause of the shootings. No one has the faintest idea whether Jared Lee Loughner had any interest in the Arizona law at all, or, if so, whether he was for it or against it. No one knows whether he had any feelings about Mexicans or other minorities, one way or the other. We have to be careful to stick to the facts.

    To give another example, even though I happen to be a former resident of Tucson myself, having lived there briefly as a very young child almost seven decades ago, I would never presume to jump to any conclusions about what the people there think now.

    The danger about drawing wider conclusions from the shooting is obvious. Doing so is a double edged sword. Suppose the shooter's name had been, not Loughner, but Lopez. Suppose further that he had been born, not in Tucson (where I am assuming he was in fact born), but a few miles further south, and had entered the US without legal permission. It is not difficult to imagine what the reaction would be on the right.

    Probably every state in the Union would now be debating laws far worse than Arizona's immigration law, with titles like "Gabrielle Giffords Anchor Babies Expulsion Act", or with provisions making it a felony to speak Spanish in public. We have to be wary about jumping to unwarranted conclusions. Doing so would merely be inviting our adversaries to do the same.
