Chew That Bone!

Strong editorial in the Gaston Gazette blasting state Sen. Don East (R-Surry) and other Republicans in the state Senate for trying to introduce a version of the Arizona anti-immigration law into North Carolina:
"We shouldn't waste our time or efforts debating an unconstitutional law."

Republicans and their wedge issues!

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx waded happily in the muck of her own hypocrisy about Hispanic immigration on Tuesday at her tele-town hall, enough so that Keith Olbermann featured her last night on his "Worst Persons in the World" segment. Think Progress this a.m. offered even more detail on the encouragement Foxx gave the immigrant-haters.

Foxx and her husband built their nursery and landscaping business with immigrant labor. Would she like to open her books on whether they were all legal immigrants? Would she like to swear up and down that she hasn't benefited personally from the Federal government's lax enforcement?

Or would she just like to go on stirring up that vitriol while sitting on her fat fortune, made on the backs of laborers who would do pretty much anything for the chance to earn a living?

The Arizona law is not unconstitutional nor is the proposed law for North Carolina. There are about 30 states in which this type laws have been introduced. It is expected to pass in many of them.

Personally, I think it would help if this law was passed in NC. I support it completely.
