The paranoia over illegal immigration has gotten ridiculous. They are treated as “the other”, and are frequently treated as if they don’t have any rights at all. Even those who are fine with “criminals” being treated like this should be appalled at the treatment of American citizens by the US border patrol agents. Mr. Richman at C4SS said it better than I can. Go read what they wrote.
“This intolerable condition should outrage every American. Have we been reduced to a society of scared children who would rather have government agents harassing us wherever we go than take our chances with freedom?”
