Comment: Boomeranging Police Measures - Those that are advocating increasingly harsh police measures against immigrants would do well to remember the history of implementation of such police measures once they are enacted. Police measures originally designed for a narrow purpose and aimed at a narrow group have been routinely used by people in power against any individual or groups for any purpose. Copyright laws have been used to prosecute Neo-Nazis; tax laws have been used as tools against the mob; and immigration laws have been used against artists who are political enemies. A Conservative group has published a petition to Tell Congress: End DHS Police State Measures The irony is that some of the folks who are supporting this petition now are the ones who have advocated using the same measures against immigrants ten years ago. Those that are supporting a new crop of draconian immigration laws today should expect them to boomerang back on themselves resulting in the loss of their own liberty in not too distant a future. Please let us know your thoughts on this boomerang effect by writing to us at
