(The mixed messages which Washington sends on undocumented immigration
are rooted in two realities, at once contradictory and complementary.
They want the immigrants here in the U.S., to work as a desperate and
impoversished helot class without rights. They use them as a pressure
force against the more fortunate, luckier, often but not always white
workers - Blacks get sucked into this, too -- to encourage the native
born workers to be hostile toward the immigrants. Here the organ of
the business community is warning their politicians of the dangerous
consequences their appeals to xenophobia and racism can have for
their ability to continue to rule the country. This is thoughtful
stuff from the other side of the fence. It's worth reading with a
good deal of attention. These rightists are playing with political
fire. There are things for the rest of us to be learned from this.)
