This lovely individual above is Heritage Foundation scholar Jason Richwine. He's co-author of the controversial study that argues an immigration overhaul would cost taxpayers $6.3 trillion. Lovely dude also happens to be the man who published a dissertation decrying immigration because Hispanics just aren't as bright as White people.

The average IQ of immigrants in the United States is substantially lower than that of the white native population, and the difference is likely to persist over several generations - Jason Richwine

Yeah! The White native population will have to deal with stupid brown people! That's so not cool! Let the White native population be great! Or as TWiB's resident fire starter Imani Gandy put it:

Call me crazy, but for a party that needs brown people to like them well enough to vote for them, it seems to me that calling Hispanics stupid is exactly the wrong way to go about it. The GOP should be deploying the friendliest among them to stand on the border, arms raised up with a boom-box blaring In Your Eyes,€ not calling brown folks a bunch of stoopid-heads. -- 'Hispanic Immigrants Be Stupid But Vote GOP!'

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
