Fresh from the NRO “Corner”:
Whose Country? [John Derbyshire][s.z.] Nowhere in the article is there anything to indicate that 33% of the town now consists of illegal aliens. (FYI: my town has gained a large proportion of Hispanic residents in the past few years, but the vast majority of them are either U.S. citizens or legal residents.) So, I guess Derb’s point is that any real American would naturally object to living in a town that’s a third Hispanic – and unless President Bush realizes this and appoints Michelle Malkin as the new head of the INS, the “base” is never going to support Bush’s immigration plan.
This news item concerns Leftist legal-action groups suing a Pennsylvania town over ordinances the town has passed to discourage illegal immigrants from settling there. Near the end comes this sentence:
“About a third of the [sic] Hazelton’s residents are Hispanic, up from around 5 percent in 2000, officials say.”
[Derb] From 5 percent to 33 percent in just six years? And the President wonders why opposition to his open-borders-and-amnesty plan is so fierce?
