Lou Dobbs employed undocumented immigrants at the same time he railed against them. Disgusting, but not surprising.

Reports reveal that private prison corporations with interests and operations in Arizona stand to benefit and profit greatly as a result of immigration laws like SB1070. And, that isn’t altogether surprising because these same reports are indicating these corporations played a role in influencing the law, which is proof that border politics and the private prison businesses are tied.

One can talk about the facts and what the law will and will not do. One can cite studies and try to employ well-reasoned arguments to explain why people, whose prejudice against immigrants is too much for them to bear, exaggerate the immigration problem. Or, one can simply share the remarks with others and give the reactionary views what they deserve: sunlight.

Courage requires that advocates for a comprehensive solution to immigration admit the errors in their strategy, which has deferred the dreams of immigrant youth for close to a decade. The least they can do is free the DREAM Act and support immigrant youth in their fight for their future.

SB 1070, which makes being undocumented a crime, shows us that we are becoming a country that asks for “your papers, please” much like in Nazi Germany where “Papiere, Bitte” meant the same in German.
Despite what Governor Brewer says, racial profiling is officially legal in Arizona, given that there is no other way to determine what an undocumented person looks like beyond brown skin, which would serve as a proxy for criminality — the crime of not carrying proper identification and a birth certificate. Find out what you can do to help repeal SB 1070.

On the eighth anniversary of 9/11, a professor of mine made a comment that caused a lot of soul-searching for me. He remarked, quite casually, that the United States is in decline.
Those words angered me. Nobody likes to hear their country characterized in that manner. But ever since then I’ve been considering that casual statement.
I think it accurately describes the state of our nation.
We are a nation in decline.
