Bob Menendez: legalizing illegal aliens is "the civil rights issue of our time"; Jamie Duffy fails at reporting
Perhaps sending a "social correspondent" to cover the Luis Gutierrez' "Family Unity Tour" isn't such a good idea. Yet, the New Jersey Star Ledger sent their Jaime Duffy to cover the tour's appearance in Morristown, New Jersey (link).
The event featured an appareance by Bob Menendez, who said:
...amnesty will "ultimately nullify the need for a 287(g)"... ..."This is the civil rights issue of our time," Menendez told the audience. "This is about all of us together," he said, noting that the people at the rally "were not the hearts that are hardened, that have to be softened."
Others there were Walter Coleman (of Elvira Arellano fame), Rep. Albio Sires; the sponsors were the Latino Leadership Alliance of New Jersey and the National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders (NCLCCL). There's absolutely nothing in the article calling any of them on their various leaps of logic, such as pretending that our laws are to blame for faulty and completely voluntary personal decisions.
