A ‘wave of hate‘ is how La Raza, an Hispanic advocacy group, characterized the will of the American people when they said NO to the “comprehensive immigration bill” that was ultimately defeated in Congress. Concerning the response of legal Americans to the under-the-table trick called an immigration bill, Cecilia Munoz, of the National Council of La Raza said this . . .
“That had an extraordinary impact in the Senate, and as a nation, I don’t think we should be comfortable with the fact that the United States Senate responded to what was largely a wave of hate.”
It is obvious who the hate mongers are here, it is Cecilia Munoz and her La Raza group. To call people who want a secure border and legal immigration as hateful is just . . . hateful. It’s hard to blame La Raza alone for that attitude because they’re saying the same things that proponents of that awful bill have said about Americans too! Pandering to special interest groups, like the open borders crowd and the illegal alien invasion has blurred the picture of national security and legal immigration.
NCLR’s convention continues today with addresses by the two leading Democratic presidential candidates, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois. With Hispanics already considered a key swing voting group, both Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama are trying to win those voters for themselves in the primaries and for Democrats in the general election.
Just one question left to be answered. Where’s the fence?
