  •  I had already read this on Steve Benen's (5+ / 0-)

    blog a while back.  Benen reported that since President Obama has been in office, ICE has been arresting more undocumented immigrants than when GWB was president. IMHO, the reason for this manufactured outrage about undocumented immigrants being significant contributors to an increase in crimes is twofold.  First, the MSM has failed once again to report the Obama Administration's increased actions to apprehend undocumented immigrants.  Second, FAIR and like minded organizations have found a way to shape public opinion against "brown" people by pouring millions of dollars into the effort and by finding and funding politicians who feel the same way.  These politicians are the conduits to getting legislation on the books that promote the racism and bigotry of groups like FAIR.  Stein wanted to say on TRMS that his organization is moderate and has attracted democrats and republicans, but he is lying.  I would imagine that FAIR and similar groups are on the fringes of the Republican Party, but like the tea partiers, they are republican to the core.
