Gerardo Sandoval is a San Francisco Supervisor, and he offers "Democrats must push immigration reform". Everything about it is wrong or just plain loony, so a full treatment isn't possible. He starts with supporting a caste system:
For the 44 million Latinos living in the United States, and for those Americans who appreciate them cleaning our offices, picking our fruit and caring for our children, the measure of success is very clear: immigration reform.
He might support increased Border Patrol funding, but only because it "may be unavoidable". Passing an "amnesty law" is the only "benchmark of success". And, he doesn't even seem to have followed the news these past six years:
At the other end, the Republican Party just selected a Latino, Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla., as its new national chairman. Republicans will try to stoke Latino conservatism while ignoring amnesty, essentially a divide-and-conquer strategy.
Earth to Sandoval: Mel Martinez is the co-sponsor of the Senate amnesty bill.
Amongst other race-based opposition to our laws comes this:
Second, Democrats need to be clear that the $6 billion border fence now under construction is not just a wasteful boondoggle, but an affront to all Latinos.
Then, there's support for illegal immigration and the importation of a foreign serf class:
Finally, we need to educate middle America about the contributions of undocumented workers. Their hard work at low wages makes America more productive.
Does anyone doubt that "middle America" isn't a codeword for "Anglos"? His disdain for "middle America" and the ethnic boosterism continues:
Their commitment to family values is not a cliche, but a wake-up call for America to care for its elderly, its sick and to spend quality time with its children instead of forgetting them at the door of some fancy private school.
Despite what I wrote above, I strongly urge the Democrats to take his advice.
