Allow me to respectfully disagree with my country's episcopacy — Catholic bishops blast Ariz. immigration law, call for national reform. The "draconian law" in question merely "compels law enforcement officials to confront individuals whom they suspect of being illegal immigrants," i.e., to enforce the law.
Allow me to disrespectfully disagree with Roberto Rodriguez for putting "'States Rights'" in scare quotes and for his dictatorial call for "President Obama and Congress" to "nullify SB 1070 and similar bills nationwide" — This is What Apartheid Looks Like.
Allow me to wholeheartedly agree with Patrick J. Buchanan, whose State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America turned me around on this issue — Whose Country Is This? Noting that "Al Sharpton [has] threaten[ed] to go to Phoenix and march in the streets against the new Arizona law," Mr. Buchanan wonders "how many African-Americans, who are today frozen out of the 8 million jobs held by illegal aliens that might otherwise go to them or their children, will march to defend an invasion for which they are themselves paying the heaviest price."
