10/04/06 - A New York Reader Explains Population Density To A Canadian Reader

From:  Matthew Richer [e-mail him]

VDARE.COM should be interested to know that the GOP gubernatorial nominee in Massachusetts, Lieutenant Gov.  Kerry Healey, is running hard on immigration reform. 

I`m involved with the campaign and I know for a fact that she`s going to push cracking down on illegals.  Her opponent, Democrat Deval Patrick, was a civil rights attorney in the Clinton Administration and is as open borders as they come. The clueless Patrick favors driver`s licenses and in-state tuition for illegal aliens. [ "Healy Urges Tougher Stance on Hiring Illegal Immigrants, Russell Nichols, Boston Globe, September 24, 2006]

This is liberal Massachusetts and the nominee is no "angry white man."  She`s a rich Harvard grad and has a Ph.D. from Trinity College, Dublin.  Healey has all the credentials that open borders elites love.  But Healey`s internal campaign polls confirm that people in Massachusetts are unhappy about immigration. Of course, you don`t need polls; common sense tells you as much. 

I never cease to be amazed at how few politicians realize that championing immigration reform is a great way to get elected.
