Brooklyn criminal (early night) court judge John H. Wilson is the author of an allegory about illegal immigration and/or massive immigration entitled "Hot House Flowers". It's 24-pages, self-published, and only available from Amazon. This site isn't exactly a big fan of the book's overview, which is indeed a little creepy and which leftie illegal immigration supporters have already taken advantage of. In the book, said hot house flowers are edged out by invasive dandelions, until the owner of the hothouse decides to weed out the dandelions. Obviously, much, much better analogies to the current situation could be found.
The flaws in the book's premise have also allowed leftwing Gramscians/legal defender/illegal immigration supporting-type persons to now ask for an ethical review. The judge also apparently asked a member of his court's advisory ethics committee to review what he was doing, and was given the OK. He was promised a written opinion, which still has not been given.
Those quoted as trying to stir up trouble are Steven Banks, chief attorney for the Legal Aid Society and Lisa Schreibersdorf, executive director of Brooklyn Defender Services.
