  • July 21 -Anti-Future And Anti-Past

    Comment: Anti-Future And Anti-Past
    The New Yorker carries an article describing and evaluating Republican reaction to the inflow of Central American children across the border.

    It is one thing for Republicans to decide that they will not be the party of immigration reform, but it is another to decide that they will be the anti-immigration party. If they do, they will define themselves in opposition to America's future and, incidentally, to its past - one built by newcomers like the gold prospector from Canada who, in 1876, sailed on a ship around South America and staked a claim that became the town of Oracle. In the short term, there may be benefits, in the form of an energized base, but enjoying them requires a distinct lack of shame.
    Immigration is an integral part of United States. To be anti-immigration is to be anti-American by disavowing her founding idea that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." No matter how many American flags anti-immigrationists use to cover up their betrayal of founding ideas of the Republic, they cannot disguise the fact that it is the immigrants that are more American, in the traditional and historic sense of the word, than those opposing them. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
