Arizona’s anti-immigrant law

That’s where you lost me, and that’s where I stopped reading. I do thank the author, however, for showing us that he is a liar or ignorant before I put too much time into reading this.

The writer (and his/her editor) needs to be careful with the word “immigrant”. Whatever phrase you choose – “unauthorized”, “illegal”, “undocumented” – you have to continue using (even though it’s admittedly clunky). Substituting the unmodified “immigrant” doesn’t work. With the exception of native Americans, we are all “immigrants”.
