  •  I don't support race baiting and scapegoating, (0+ / 0-)

    but a member of Congress is free to support any legal and ethical means to solve a problem (or perceived problem).  His district ultimately dictates whether he's right or wrong.

      isn't ethical, either.

      Anywhere.

      And it is based on strong perception of stereotypes about hispanics.  e.g. illegals steal your stuff, illegals will kill you on your farm. Illegals stuff 15 people in a house. Illegals don't contribute to society.  All of these "concerns" have been proven false or not substantive.

      One of the early comments made the claim that meat packing and other processing plants are refusing to hire Americans. That's probably true but you can count on this that the Republicans will not tolerate any operational change in the status quo.  The illegals of today will become tomorrow's "Guest Workers" with no path to citizenship and none of the protections of citizens.    

      If you want real change, then stop electing Blue Dogs.  They don't help create real change. if you want real change work for progressive values.
