Illegal immigration

One of the last things La Raza’s Janet Murguia (11/4, Opinion, “La Raza left because it objects to extremism”) wants Americans to remember regarding our porous borders is the war on terror. I am sure she also hopes that the House Committee on Homeland Security report titled “A Line in the Sand: Confronting the Threat at the Southwest Border” stays buried by the media.

The 2006 report reveals that “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigations have revealed that aliens were smuggled from the Middle East to staging areas in Central and South America, before being smuggled illegally into the United States.” And that “members of Hezbollah have already entered the United States across the Southwest border.”

In her fanaticism to promote “The Race” and a repeat of the failed amnesty of 1986, Murguia has joined the national campaign to smear anyone who speaks out in favor of secure borders and an equal application of American laws — if it includes the illegal aliens who are her Golden Goose.

Murguia also hopes that we will forget real immigrants join the American family lawfully and do not require amnesty — and that putting them in the same category as illegal aliens is the ultimate immigrant bashing.

Who is the “extremist”?

D.A. King
President, Dustin Inman Society
Marietta, Ga.

Editor’s note: Murguia referred to King and his Georgia-based organization, which opposes illegal immigration, in her Sunday column.

Smearing all who disagree with you. It's such an American thing to do! That is why the same tactic is used by all sides.
