New Republic Article on Rise in Anti-Immigrant Groups

The November 7 issue of the New Republic includes an interesting article by Clay Risen that focuses in anti-iimigrant activism in the South.  The aricle provides some fascinating insights (such was the increasing tendency among anti-immigrant activists to equate illegal immigration with terrorism)  about the various Minutemen "franchises" springing up in Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, and other states.  The article, which was written before Jerry Kilgore was defeated in the Virginia Governor's race, mentions that Kilgore made immigration enforcement a high profile issue in the state (especially Northern Virginia).
