Transforming the Immigration Debate
A coalition of human rights and labor groups have begun a campaign to counter what they call the "vile and vicious" rhetoric of the anti-illegal immigration movement and "recapture the civility of discussion and debate" on the issue of comprehensive immigration reform. The campaign, called Campaign for a United America, launched Wednesday with the release of its Web site, http: www.campaignforaunitedamerica.org/

For a second I was thinking 'Another group?' but it's the same one reported the other day.
Does anyone else roll their eyes at a group claiming to want to "recapture the civility of discussion and debate" and then makes a 'Voices of Intolerance' list smearing those who happen to disagree with them? Foster debate? Their message to those on the other side is SHUT UP!
'the coalition will give tool kits to community groups that include sample letters to the editor and instructions on constructive meeting techniques.'
I'm not going to bother but have to admit I'm curios as to just how loaded those sample letters might be. Somehow I think this bunch wants to spread a little more than 'constructive meeting techniques'!

I am against illegal immigration. What do these people not understand about the work ILLEGAL?
The pro-illegal immigration crowd are the ones that are violent at rallies. I know, I've been to some.
What is wrong with coming to the USA legally?
