Is Immigration the Problem?
I love a good editorial that deconstructs and refutes anti-immigrant arguments in a well balanced discussion any day of the week. I particularly love one that frames our current issues within the wide lens of history. I recently saw an article on People's Weekly World that takes apart the flawed and misguided arguments of Numbers USA, on of the numerous anti-immgirant groups springing up in the last few years... Read the article HERE The author's bottomline is that anti-immigrants have tried for centuries to rip our communities apart, but "Today, immigrants and U.S.-born workers — Black, white and Latino — are joining together in a host of struggles. If we reject anti-immigration diversions, we can take a lesson from the 1930s, and “unite and fight” for the people’s needs."
