It will be a terrible day in this country when the media is punished for its curiousity, but I'm not surprised by the NYT's article. Its been characteristic of advocates to criticize reporters, using terms like racist when the negative aspects of illegal immigration are discussed. Inskeep was just asking a question, and the New York Times being the tool of illegal immigration advocates made an issue of it. What's their point if not to admonish with the purpose of discouraging controversial questioning. How far will the NYT go in its role as mouthpeace for Mexico?

Columnist X writes some good columns. Like most generalists, he doesn't appear to know much about immigration. With no real specifics or fresh ideas to offer, his de rigeur immigration column falls back on the easy-to-write form of homily.
Process repeats with next writer.
