Joel Stein: My Taco With Tancredo

Joel Stein in the L.A. Times writes of his lunch with Tom Tancredo on the Iowa camaign circuit.  Suprisingly enough, Tancredo is a big fan of Mexican food (even though his immigration policies would keep many Mexican immigrants out of the country).  Stein's column in a light-hearted way reveals some of Tancredo's complexities.

'he isn't a racist.'

How big of him to admit.

'the millions of Mexicans denied the opportunities his own grandparents got.'

Interesting and revealing perspective. That is a fundamental difference between the two basic immigration sides. One looks at it pretty exclusively from a homer perspective. What do we (America/Americans) want and need. Which makes sense in a nation-state.

The other (globalist mindset) side like Stein comes more from a foreign national's right/opportunity perspective. You'd never guess it from the rhetoric that the foreign national doesn't have any such right of his own and depends on the policy of the sovereign. That fact is often ignored, if not denied.
