Dopey WNJ Letter of the Week

Kate van Horn of Newark wins this round with this dopey screed:

If immigrants were wealthy and gave enormous contributions to the Republican Party, we would welcome them with lavish banquets. When the poor arrive, they clean our detritus.

The poor are welcomed only to provide more fodder for the wars of the rich.

Let's see ... we're also "told" by the Kates around us that Republicans really don't want illegal immigration to cease because the "rich corporate types" can make even more money by hiring those whom they don't have to pay even minimum wage. And, of course, the significant distinction between legal and illegal immigration is once again conveniently omitted. Oh, and then there's the synonymity of "poor" with "immigrant." Ahh. Of course. But doesn't Kate know that illegal immigrants can't be "fodder for the wars of the rich"? Probably not. Just like she doesn't know that Democrats have as much reason to ignore illegal immigration as Republicans. Democrats will supposedly "fight for immigrant rights" (again, ignoring the distinction between "illegal" and "legal," but really meaning illegal) and then promise that the government "will take care of you" so that they can envelop a new permanent, reliance-based constituency.

Ií»ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. Ita??s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
