George Borjas notes
that the New York Times reported this quote by Senator Kennedy without any comment:
Referring to opponents of the bill, Mr. Kennedy said: â€?We know what they donâ€™t like. What are they for? What are they going to do with the 12 million who are undocumented here? Send them back to countries around the world? Develop a type of Gestapo here to seek out these people that are in the shadows? Whatâ€™s their alternative?â€?[Immigration Bill Fails to Survive Senate Vote, By ROBERT PEAR and CARL HULSE, New York Times, June 28, 2007]
Nothing offensive about a Senator comparing American law enforcement to the Gestapo, is there?
But they were able to find some "heated rhetoric"
from Republican Senator Jeff Sessions
â€?The bill would provide amnesty and a path to citizenship for people who broke into our country by running past the National Guard.â€?[After Billâ€™s Fall, G.O.P. May Pay in Latino Votes, By JENNIFER STEINHAUER New York Times, July 1, 2007]
The idea that it`s a "heated rhetoric"
to criticize illegal aliens is strange, and as for border control costing the GOP the votes of Hispanics who don`t vote Republican anyway, that`s just the MSM`s way of saying that Hispanics are disloyal.
