Re: Today's Letter: A CA Reader Predicts Treason Lobby Will Make Economic Chaos A Reason For Amnesty
As California letter writer Judy Payne expected, it didn't take long for illegal immigration apologists to start clamoring for amnesty, using the financial crisis as an excuse.
I her Tuesday Op-ed, Marjorie Eagan writes:
"Perhaps the time has come, said lawyer Stephen Townsend, to legalize illegal immigrants, preferably overnight. They're 14 million of them, maybe more. Why shouldn't illegals share our $700 billion pain?"[ Will Wall Street Crooks Pay the Ultimate Price? by Marjorie Eagan, Boston Herald, September 23, 2008]
Townsend's remark doesn't make sense—what's the connection between amnesty and the Wall Street collapse?
But this is how the Treason Lobby operates. Throw out any reason and see what sticks.
