Missing The Point

Or perhaps a better title is "Fraudulently Misrepresenting The Point."

Apparently, race hustlers have announced that tomorrow will be a "Day Without Immigrants" in Prince William County. It will be a day when immigrants are supposed to stay home in order to protest.... well, it's not entirely clear what they're supposed to be protesting.

After all, the policies being pursued by the Prince William County Board of Supervisors are targeted at illegal immigrants, not all immigrants. Indeed, I'm sure that most citizens of the County, like me, have no problem at all with immigrants --- indeed, they welcome them --- they only opposed people who commit crimes. Hence, the term illegal immigrants.

The point, of course, is to confuse the issue, to misrepresent fraudulently that policies attempting to deny public benefits to people who shouldn't receive them, people who have committed --- and continue to commit --- a crime.

One can only hope that this fraudulent protest is not joined by those many legal immigrants --- for example, the naturalized citizen who services the Young fleet, and those among his employees who are legal and in the process of being naturalized, the highest form of flattery --- who are a welcome and welcomed addition to our citizenry.
