  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    Re: The ungrammatically entitled article that Arizona is not the first state to take the immigration laws into "their" (sic) own hands - please forgive the nitpicking about what is otherwise an excellent article by the Immigration Policy Center in today's ID.

    Also re: another article in today's ID about the expected increase in H-1B inspections. These two articles show that America is now in the eye of the hurricane of anti-immigrant racial pandering. Draconian federal, state and local initiatives against illegal immigrants have only one purpose: to cut down on the number of Hispanics in this country.

    The endless restrictions against and investigations of H-1B visa holders are meant to accomplish the same purpose on the legal immigration side, with respect to Indian and other primarily Asian immigrants. Giving free rein to prejudice is as foolish as it is destructive. Prejudice cannot be controlled or limited to certain particular targets. People who hate Hispanics and Asians are not likely to turn out to be very good friends of African-Americans, Jews, or some of America's other more traditional targets of discrimination.

    As just one example, look at the disgraceful attacks against one of the greatest jurists in our history, Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, by certain Republican Senators during the Kagan confirmation hearings yesterday. Some people may think that the above events are not connected. Nothing could be further from the truth.
