At the Heart of the Debate

In yesterday's post about the illegal immigration debate, I referenced the relative paucity of American flags vs. Mexican or Honduran flags at the recent protests against immigration reform. This picture describes, better than words, the kind of pro-Mexican, anti-American sentiment that is too often enshrouded in politically correct doubletalk when it comes to news coverage of illegal immigration.

This is the kind of thing that's easy to miss if you don't live in a border state. But if you do, it's impossible to ignore.

America has always been a nation of legal immigrants. Lady Liberty still lifts her lamp beside the golden door for people who want to become Americans. Those whose primary loyalty is to another country have no business either applying for citizenship, or beoming US citizens.

Did the students who raised Old Glory upside down realize that it is a signal of extreme distress?

Let's face it, elarson, the students in today's schools are distressed! They obviously do not get their, or should I say their parent's, dollars worth of education.

Do they even get a dime's worth?
