There was an article in the Wall Street Journal this morning about how the immigration issue is “boiling over”. But what I wonder was, what exactly could the illegal immigrants do? Leave? Annoy the American Street enough to create the political will for mass deportations? I find the theory that ANSWER, the original organizer, had as its goal to make things worse for illegal immigrants, not better. The goal would be to create the pre-conditions for violence and/or revolution, a situation to ANSWER’s benefit, if not that of the cannon fodder.
It seems like that isn’t going to work out so well, as many illegal immigrant groups have figured out what a bad idea these marches and protests are from the point of view of the actual illegal immigrants. It may be bad to be an illegal immigrant in the USA, but obviously it beats the heck out of being a legal national in Mexico or points further south.
