NYT editorial hopeful about Obama immigration picks; Bush "terrorized", "hunted down" illegal aliens

As their Christmas gift to the world, the New York Times offered the editorial "Getting Immigration Right" (link). As with all their other editorials on this topic, it's wrong, beginning with their sleazy inability to admit that they and George W Bush are on the same side:

This is why it is so important to reverse the Bush administration’s immigration tactics, which for years have attacked the problem upside down and backward. To appease Republican nativists, it lavished scarce resources solely on hunting down and punishing illegal immigrants. Its campaign of raids, detentions and border fencing was a moral failure. Among other things, it terrorized and broke apart families and led to some gruesome deaths in shoddy prisons. It mocked the American tradition of welcoming and assimilating immigrant workers.

Bush and the NYT want the same thing; Bush just put on a few show raids at the same time as he allowed millions of illegal aliens to enter the U.S. And, the NYT's support for assimilation is as shallow as that of the Bush administration.

They also praise Obama's cabinet picks: Janet Napolitano, Bill Richardson, and Hilda Solis. Of the latter, they say that she's "built a reputation as a staunch defender of immigrants and workers." To translate that, she's been a strong supporter of illegal activity; see the last link.

They also live in a fantasy world where we can enforce labor but not immigration laws.


Smells like treason to me

I can't say the ILLEGAL ALIENS are completely to blame for the shape of our economy, but they are a BIG part of the problem. The ILLEGAL ALIENS send BILLIONS upon BILLIONS out of this Country every year, money we will NEVER see again. Does this help our economy? How about the BILLIONS the American taxpayers fork out for the ANCHOR BABIES, the schooling of them, the medical care and the list goes on, and on, and on. How about the MILLIONS upon MILLIONS paid to jail ILLEGAL ALIENS for the crimes, then the cost to deport them. Does this help our economy? I believe it is time for all 50 States to pass a State law, like Arizona, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Missouri, South Carolina and a few others. It is time for these ILLEGAL ALIENS to go back to their home Country and get out of this Country. Then you have these so called activist groups that want AMNESTY for these ILLEGAL ALIENS. It would be absolute suicide for this Country if AMNESTY were granted to the 20 million or so ILLEGAL ALIENS. We have more and more people out of work everyday and they want to add another 20 million to this Country? I say, "NO"! If AMNESTY were ever granted to these 20 million ILLEGAL ALIENS, you can bet big money that 3 years from now, there would be ANOTHER 3-5 million ILLEGAL ALIENS demonstrating on our soil for AMNESTY. Is this what we want?

the political pigs will never be happy until all Americans live like third world people that is the real story.

to delaware bob the deal has been made and Obama will keep his word to our enemies and the total amnesty will happen and the total dismantlement of our country and our way of life and our right's and civil rights will disappear like rain on a hot tin roof. our once great nation will become a world joke.

Better that the government and law hunt down the criminals before the 'American citizens' decide it's time to get rid of the government/law and the criminal aliens. It is within our power to do just that. Noose tying may become the new favorite night course.

NEVER Happen Scrapiron people would run-away from any justice.
