Ethnic Cleansing

Orson Scott Card is a well known sci-fi novelist who taught a semester at ASU way back when. He currently lives in Greensboro, and the essay that got our attention today (hat-tip, Craig) was published in RhinoTimes.com.

Like Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal," Card's rhetorical rejection of "amnesty" for illegal immigration is pushed to its logical conclusion. He's simply playing off the "deport 'em first, and let God sort 'em out" political posturing of the Republican brain-trust in N.C., politicians like Reps. Foxx, Myrick, McHenry, et al.

Get those cattle cars hosed down! And we're gonna need every available school bus too!
