Cynthia Tucker: Democrats should put immigration "reform" front and center - 11/10/07

Cynthia Tucker has a laugh-a-line column called here "Democrats must take immigration reins and ride the high road". She plays the race card, saying among other things that the Republicans are "scapegoat[ing] foreigners", compares legalizing foreign citizens who are here illegally to the civil rights movement, and offers the stock false choice between a massive amnesty and mass deportations.

Cynthia Tucker isn't the worst commentator on immigration matters, and that's only partly because she mostly comments on other things.

Cynthia Tucker of the Atlanta Journal Constitution opposes a Hazleton-style ordinance considered for Cherokee County in Georgia in "In bullying illegals, county picks easy fight".

In 1998, when INS agents rounded up illegal workers at the Vidalia onion fields in southeast Georgia, Mr. Chambliss and a handful of other Georgia congressmen denounced the agency.

Cynthia Tucker to uncover corruption! - 04/09/06

Without using the word "corrupt", Cynthia Tucker of the Atlanta Journal Constitution opines that our national politicians are corrupt: If they really wanted to, your representatives in Washington could dry up illegal immigration almost before you could say, "Tom Tancredo is a tiresome demagogue." All they would have to do is require U.S.

Cynthia Tucker's illegal immigration strawman; a challenge - 10/02/05

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist offers "Don't blame illegals; blast their bosses", which shall be mini-fisked as follows: In every time, and in every place, there are demagogues who ride to power by whipping up the fears and resentments of an anxious populace. Believe or don't, she's referring to Tom Tancredo.
