Hurray for our Latinos...!
Deprived of any substantive issues ahead of this year's mid-term congressional elections, the Republicans have reached into their deck and drawn the race-card. Introducing a stream of anti-immigrant legislation specifically directed against brown-skinned workers is the GOP's post-Bush, post-9/11 strategy.
And as they advance their short-term political goals, the congressional GOP institutionalizes a culture of hypocrisy which punishes immigrants publicly while paying them privately. To quote a sign that hung today on an overpass above the 101 freeway, "We built your houses, we growed [sic] your food, and now you call us criminals?"
i have said for many years that, if the latino population of the u.s. all decided to stop working at the same time, the country would have no choice but to post a big "Closed" sign...
i couldn't be more delighted to see things take this turn... our immigrants make this country run on a daily basis... our businesses grow fat off their labor, our lawns are mowed, our fast food is served, our trash is removed, our food is harvested, our goods are delivered and our homes are built at their hands... james sensenbrenner and his bigoted ilk can take their racist, reactionary, fear-based, criminalizing crap and shove it directly down the toilet...
hurray for our latinos...! each one of them does more honest work in one day than sensenbrenner has done in his entire life... Submit To Propeller
