Letters to the editor
Question of the Day
For example, environmental groups and labor unions did not mention the cases you describe. The AFL-CIO’s letter of opposition described how “Judge Southwick has ruled overwhelmingly against workers and consumers, and in favor of business interests, in divided cases.”
Serious concerns raised by Earthjustice and other environmental groups focused on unfair denial of access to courts and judicial activism. We concluded: “His record as a judge, combined with Judge Southwick’s own words, raise questions about his ability to be a fair and neutral arbiter of environmental and other cases that involve the interests of corporate defendants.”
Senior legislative counsel
In the Page One Sunday story “Hispanic group aims to stop ‘wave of hate,’” Cecilia Munoz, vice president of the National Council of La Raza, is quoted as saying about the rejection of the amnesty bill: “I don’t think we should be comfortable with the fact that the United States Senate responded to what was largely a wave of hate.”
Supporters of blanket amnesty for illegal aliens, through an appeal to emotion, always attribute malice aforethought to opponents of amnesty. Any American who wants to enforce the security, sovereignty and territorial integrity of the United States and stop paying the educational, medical and social-welfare-benefit costs of those not authorized to be in the United States regardless of race is called a bigot or xenophobe or said to be full of hate. Any organization that names itself “The Race” should look in a mirror for traces of bigotry, xenophobia and hate.
Of course, talk radio is seen as the culprit for the American people rising up to defend their country against an invasion. Americans don’t need talk radio to see the masses of illegal aliens in long waits in emergency rooms or our overcrowded schools. We don’t need a caudillo or anyone else leading us in order to defend our country.
