Fear of immigrants and their ability to steal jobs away from Americans, basically getting something (job) for nothing (not becoming a citizen), is the bane of conservative orthodoxy.
What a proud history. Enough said.
Wisconsin State Journal: By a narrow margin, the Ozaukee County supervisors voted to apologize to the people of Arizona whose feelings might have been hurt by Milwaukee Area Technical College's decision to endorse the international boycott of the state.
The MATC board's decision to join the boycott was in keeping with another historic tradition: that of withholding economic support from governments that show disrespect for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, civil liberties and civil rights.
In what tradition was the Ozaukee County Board's apology?
Presumably, that of Ozaukee County, where locals rioted during the Civil War because they did not want to join the fight against slavery, where Joe McCarthy always received a warm welcome and where residents have with their votes cheered on Congressman James Sensenbrenner's emergence as one of the nation's leading immigrant bashers. No one should be surprised that a majority of Ozaukee County Board members concluded that criticism of Arizona's intolerant and divisive actions is somehow "divisive and intolerant."
