Taking the Moral Stance on Immigration

On Sunday there was a great letter in the Des Moines Register by Dave Leach about how conservatives have lost their moral compass on the issue of immigration. The letter debunks arguments used to dehumanize illegal immigrants and concludes...

Tom Tancredo has spun our unofficial moral compass around like a Wheel of Fortune, with enough success that the other candidates are afraid to define amnesty correctly or to oppose Tancredo's National ID agenda. The National ID is more big-brotherish than the one in Hillary Clinton's 1993 health-care plan, at which moral conservatives professed to be aghast.

Moral conservatives used to be against the drawing of lines around the rights of others where God has not drawn them, whether it was skin color, not yet being born, or being born on the other side of a line.

Who hijacked my category? I feel like an illegal alien in my own category!

Noneed, you are aligning yourself with Uncle Ed???????????

Where the f**k are the pigs flying by my house.

You know, Uncle Ed provided the only time I've had to operate like a Democrat Chair (like my Dad) and tell Uncle Ed that he had to find maybe a somewhat more conservative organization than the Republican Party of Iowa because he was pretty clearly not a Republican, neo or paleo.
