On the 9th, the New York Times offered the editorial "Is It Fixed Yet?". Frankly, pointing out all the ways the New York Times immigration editorials are wrong is getting a bit tiresome, so instead I'm going to outsource most of it to former NYC mayor Ed Koch who, surprisingly, is supportive of attrition (reducing the numbers of illegal aliens here by enforcing our laws).
However, this bit from the current screed must be noted here:
...a crackdown in Prince William County, Va., inspired a boycott and a fiery march last week led by a testy group called Mexicanos Sin Fronteras. You didn't think they were just going to roll over, did you? They're immigrants: smart, industrious self-starters, like your grandparents.
The site at the last link has several entries about that "testy" group, for instance in this category.
And, the WaPo even had a profile of those "self-starters":
Today, [Mexicans Without Borders leader Ricardo Juarez] and his wife, Patricia, live with [his brother Alex Juarez], his wife and their three children in a two-story Woodbridge home. A photo of early 20th-century Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata hangs in the den, casting a burning stare from beneath a large sombrero... Zapata's modern-day acolytes, the leftist rebels of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation, have shaped Juarez's worldview and inspired his organizational strategies -- minus the ski masks and AK-47s. Although Juarez certainly does not advocate armed struggle in the Virginia suburbs, he has worked with Zapatista-affiliated activist organizations, according to Juarez and Web sites, and shares the rebel group's contention that U.S. free-trade polices hurt Latin America's poor and drive emigration.
