  •  Oh, sure (6+ / 0-)

    But their conclusions on the cost of amnesty rest, at least in part, on poor education and employment outcomes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation immigrants.  Not because they are stupid, apparently; but maybe because they are brown, or speak two languages, or eat beans, or something.

    •  When the Bell Curve came out (3+ / 0-)

      I either remember or am now confabulating, but it seems that it was arguing, dispassionately, of course, that money is wasted on schools with large black populations.

      Or highly educated and well-paid words to such an effect.

      A mere racist rationalization dressed up as 'science'.

      •  Which is convenient (0+ / 0-)

        since cutting back funding to schools with high black populations would drive their IQ scores down even more. They could then crow about how they were 'right' because the IQ scores were dropping.
