Immigration: Allies We Could Do Without

In a heated exchange over immigration Wednesday, Rep. Leo Berman shouted "go home!" to a Dallas lawyer of Chinese-American descent who had called the lawmaker "despicable" and "evil." from The Dallas Morning News

to which it can be suggested that the lawyer is at home.

I could agree with every listed measure Berman proposed (and I do) and still think what he said was despicable because it was racist and xenophobic. Americans need not be white and immigrants need not be white. They need only come into this country the right way.
