In a My Turn column riddled with half-truths, outright falsehoods and absurdities, open borders proponents Alfredo Gutierrez and Salvador Reza, feebly attempt to convince readers of the daily that enforcement of the federal law 287(g) is racist.
And if that doesn’t work, the duo, which proudly claims an alliance with the notorious criminal enterprise known as ACORN, strives to persuade that enforceable borders are not the right of a sovereign nation.
To make their convoluted points, they not only go after the daily’s favorite subject to malign — Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — but have former Gov. Janet Napolitano, the uber-liberal Democrat now Barack Obama’s Homeland INsecurity chief, in their sights. They implore her to show her credentials by terminating what they refer to as “archaic policies that have plagued immigration reform for so long.” Tossing around words such as “dragnets,” “scapegoat the poor.” and their favorite descriptive term, “harassing people of color,” they recount that such people are “forced to take life-threatening risks [presumably paying coyote transporters to sneak them in] because there is no reasonable path to achieving legal residency in the U.S.”
It might come as a shock to Gutierrez and Reza, but the United States of America actually has a legal front door process to gain citizenship that does not include the unlawful component of criminally trespassing into our country in violation of our sovereignty.
Surprisingly, they even write about “integrating immigrant populations into American life.” Would that include doing away with Radio Campesina Network where Gutierrez hosts a daily radio talk show and his own Spanish language advocacy firm? Will Reza cease organizing illegal day laborers and protests which hinder decades-old, family-owned local businesses? Could we soon expect to stop hearing “Press 2” for Spanish?
