Getting History Right

Heather McDonald is absolutely right in asserting that Prop. 187 (removing government benefits from illegal immigrants) has little to do with the Democratic domination of California.

Rather, as she points out, the burgeoning Hispanic population -- often poor and underprivileged -- does. What's more, the 1990's decline of the defense industry and successive cycles of Democratic tax and spend government (with the accompanying exorbitant taxes and over-regulation) have driven many of the educated and productive taxpayers from the state.
