Legal evil

So after all the hysterical exaggeration in recent weeks about the threat posed to our nation by illegal immigrants, does anyone else find it ironic that the suspect in the Times Square car bomb case is a legal immigrant?

And correct me if I'm wrong, but to the best of my knowledge, no Mexicans who have crossed into Arizona illegally have filled SUVs with explosives in an attempt to commit mass murder.

The problems in Arizona, in terms of violence and illegal immigrants, are related to Mexican drug gangs. Murder and kidnapping (and lots of the latter) are among the chief concerns. It has nothing to do with hysteria.

Whether the law about which there is some controversy is going to help or not is yet to be determined, but there is nothing particularly unusual or draconian about the law.
