Anti-Immigrationists And Their Media Sidekicks

Anti-immigrationists with the media as their sidekick have claimed that conservative Republicans threaten revolt against President Bush for his pro-immigration views, creating a fission within the Republican party. However, the proof is in the pudding. Both Pat Buchanan and Tom Tancredo, Republicans known for their strong anti-immigration views, have publicly endorsed President Bush. Furthermore, in recent primary elections including the one held in Arizona yesterday, pro-immigration Republicans have handily beaten anti-immigration opponents. Primary elections reflect the views of the hardcore Party members who are more conservative than the average Republican (just as voters in Democratic primaries are more liberal than the average Democrat). Even amongst the conservative Republicans, the anti-immigration message is losing at the polls. Anti-immigrationists in cahoots with the unquestioning media have manufactured a nonexistent controversy within the Republican Party. Perhaps it is to mask the fact that anti-immigration views may not be supported by as many as they wish us to believe.

Dear Editor:
How about "Finding the joy and avoiding the pitfalls of immigration" or "Immigration news you can really use." If you are looking for a truly cheesy slogan: "Great Resource. Great News. It's just immi-great".

A. Hall, Paralegal

Dear Editor:
Here are several suggestions: (1) Bringing the world together through immigration (2) Comings and goings the revolving door of immigration (3) Comings and goings news from the immigration portal (4) Up to date news on the immigration portal (5) ILW.COM -- news on the immigration portal.

Dear Editor:
How about this slogan? ILW.COM: Illegals Least Welcome. Another would be: "De-alienating the masses".


Dear Editor:
National Immigration Forum's rebuttal is full of assertions, but no evidence. The data that CIS based its research on are publicly available. Let National Immigration Forum run the data using its assertions, and present us with the results. Until then, they're mouthing the same tired arguments that immigrants, all immigrants, legal or illegal, are a benefit to the US. Or could it be that he's afraid that this new generation of immigrants, consisting as it does largely of unskilled, uneducated, workers, will put the lie to his claims, and refute the earlier work on immigration which showed that previous generations of more highly skilled, highly educated legal immigrants did indeed have a (small) net benefit to the US economy, and assimilated over time. By the way, National Immigration Forum, if it actually does such a study, should consider whether the economic benefits that immigrants do produce could be/would be produced by citizens if immigration didn't occur. It should also consider whether the benefits accrue to the US citizenry as a whole, or only to the immigrants themselves.
