It would be too much to expect the LA Limes to accurately report on the overwhelming support immigration enforcement enjoys in Arizona. But buried deep in the story, there it is:
Merrill (political pollster and ASU professor emeritus) said that polling he’s done shows that illegal immigration remains a huge issue and that most people, including Latinos, generally feel strongly about securing the border
of course, this sensible notion still had to be disparaged later on:
“I don’t want open borders. We have to protect our country,” said (Lydia) Guzman, of Respect/Respeto (an illegal immigrant advocacy group). “But this has become not just an anti-immigrant thing. It’s become anti-Latino.”
There it is, that final dig, the false spectre of anti-Hispanic bias being at the root of immigration enforcement.
American Rattlesnake looks forward to the day when the liberal mainstream press will report immigration issues accurately; that tough immigration enforcement is driven not by racism, but by patriotism. Until then, the Rattlesnake will keep sounding the alarm and speaking the truth.
