Who could have predicted that the Supreme Court decision on SB 1070, the Arizona law that kicked off the furor over state immigration enforcement, would coincide so perfectly with the heat being turned up on Eric Holder over Fast and Furious?
Has the dialogue on immigration become so corrupted by twisted rhetoric that we will be forced to choose between racial profiling and ethnic entitlement? In less than three weeks Arizona’s SB 1070 immigration law comes before the Supreme Court. Last week we caught a glimpse of how the president views our highest judicial body.
America is an awful place. We are unfair to our workers, we force the middle class to finance the wretched excesses of the wealthy, and some of our states even plan to ask residents to verify their immigration status. Worst of all, in Alabama schools that provide free public education may ask parents to document whether they are citizens.
