LETTER TO EDITOR: Everyone’s policy
Question of the Day
National Council of La Raza President Janet Murguia has proclaimed that her group is eager to “take back the debate” on immigration (“Hispanic leaders eafer to ‘referee debate,’ ” Politics, Wednesday). This is a prime example of how the issue has been completely hijacked by special interests, like the Hispanic lobby and big business.
Her implication is that Hispanics alone are entitled to “referee” this matter. The fact that she is able to call the views of those who disagree with NCLR’s militantlyopen-borders, pro-illegalimmigration stance “hate speech” should alarm every citizen of this country.
Immigration policy ispublic policy. That means tthat Americans have the one-and-only voice in deciding what the admission rules should be. We don’t need a referee, Ms. Murguia. We just need some politicians who will stand up for an immigration system that actually benefits the entire country.
