One of our readers pointed me to the recent article of Ruben Navarrette, the San Diego writer for CNN. He says that opponents of any immigration reform or relief see Hispanic and other immigrants as weakening U.S. identity. For example, One town demanded all library books be in English according to Navarrete. Hispanic immigrants may be the current group at the center of this debate and to be targeted the most.
Living in San Diego, CA, we see the attitude towards Hispanic immigrants every days. The Mexican jokes and stereo types are becoming part of our life. But when you hear of the minutemen project and the like, you know that this is where our country will need to look back at history and make sure we don’t repeat it.
