    The hatred, violence, racist and homophobic insults and death threats that have been directed against Democratic members of Congress who voted for health care reform are only a dress rehearsal for what is in store for any politician who supports real immigration reform. By reform I mean more visas for skilled workers, an end to the current "below the radar" attempts by top USCIS and other DHS officials to destroy the H-1B and other legal visa programs by issuing memos whose objectivity and respect for established precedent remind one of John Yoo's memos on torture, and, above all legalization.

    There is at least some reason to believe that the Republican hysteria over the passage of health care was manufactured in the board rooms and lobbyists' offices of the big health insurers who are furious that they were unable to buy all of the Democrats in Congress, even as they had bought all of the Republicans.

    But when it comes to hatred of Mexicans and other darker skinned immigrants, we are dealing with genuine and widespread popular rage, not the artificial K Street astro-turf variety, of a kind that I have not seen since 1954, when I was a high school student and the Supreme Court came out with the school desegregation decision.

    But even the wave of anti-black hatred that was unleashed by the Brown v Board of Education decision was nothing compared to what will happen if real immigration reform passes. This is no doubt why so many USCIS, ICE, CBP and DOL officials are so reluctant to apply existing immigration laws fairly or rationally, lest they be criticized from being too pro-immigrant by the rapidly growing number of bigots and xenophobes in our midst. This is why it is hard to be optimistic about the prospects for genuine immigration reform.

    In re "But even the wave of anti-black hatred that was unleashed by the Brown v Board of Education decision was nothing compared to what will happen if real immigration reform passes." in Mr. Algase's comment, please, get a grip. After 9-11 exactly one attempted murder occurred in 'retaliation', and the fools killed a Sikh. The violence that occurred as the one-party states in the South first integrated their formerly lilly white institutions and then their equally Democrat parties would be difficult to recreate.

    As for my Republican party's alleged hysteria over health reform, I sit in no corporate board rooms and I am an American because I fled the Canadian model. The big business wing of our party cares less about health reform (unless it is in the business of healthcare or pre-paid medical care) than small businessmen, the retired and those who work at smaller companies do - just look at who lined up against it first and which lobbies wanted buy in from the beginning. I've been to some tea party events and the members tend to be highly educated and staid, boring even, family people. To find real kooks among them, one has to look a lot harder than one does to find Marxists or dangerously unhygeinic body art at a more typical protest rally.

    That said, I expect that immigration reform will be a mess, with, unfortunately, most of my party opposing whatever comes down the pike if it actually gets to meaningful votes this year.

    With regard to Honza Prchal's post concerning my comment about the danger of violence of immigration reform passes, all of us, of course, hope that his comment will be accurate and that my comment's concern will turn out to be misplaced. However, Mr. Prchal's comment overlooks the fact that there have been numerous reports of hate crimes against minority immigrants during the past several years, even though they may not be specifically related to the 9/11 attacks (in which, according to a CNN report at the time, over 500 victims were immigrants, not US citizens. Many of them were from Latin America).

    But anyone who reads a random selection of comments on almost any given day in response to any news story dealing with immigration on the website even of a supposedly liberal paper like the Washington Post is likely to come across literally hundreds of comments containing every imaginable threat against Hispanic and other minority immigrants.

    A typical one is to state that the writer would like to make sure that there is a grave available to bury anyone coming over the Mexican border. True, these comments may deal with people coming illegally, but I am not clear exactly about how burying them relates to law enforcement as we know it.

    Many of the comments do not even bother to hide behind the fig leaf of opposing illegal immigration. A large number of the ones I have seen are filled with racial epithets against all Latinos and a variety of threats against politicians who support amnesty, which by its very definition, would involve a legal process. I have also read dozens of comments on the website saying that all immigration should be stopped immediately. This, of course, would affect millions of people applying for legal status.

    My point is that there is a lot of anti-immigrant hate out there. One does not have to have been among those at the Tea Party convention who were cheering at Tom Tancredo's vicious racial attacks against Latino US citizens (who were his main target, since he was talking about voting rights) in order to be infected by the virus of prejudice. If immigration reform progresses, we will without any doubt see a lot more of it. All of us hope that this will not result in any violence, but based on what is happening now with the arguably much less contentious and emotional issue of health care reform, no one can be sure.
