It is about Security Stupid!

The other day I posted an article about how the Chronicle is all in a tither about how some of the new immigration proposals will impact cross border consumerism. Today, they published what at first I thought was the same dang article, but upon looking a little closer, I realized it is a different article but not by a whole lot. The location changes, and the writer is different but it really is at it's core the same damned story. Look, the simple fact of the matter is, the border security proposals aren't going to change cross border consumerism one whit. If they cross the border legally with the proper paperwork, they'll have no problem coming or going, same it is now. The only changes will be that there will not be crossings at uncontrolled places. I do wish the morons over at the chronicle would stop beating that dead horse, it is NOT gonna get up and run a race for them, all it is doing is splattering unidentifiable horse bits everywhere.

Although the article doesn't specifically raise the illegal immigration question, I agree that it's definately the sub text of the piece.

By appealing to economic interests, but leaving out mention of the immigration proposals, they must hope that readers will make the connection: Mexicans in Texas = good; QED: immigration proposals = no Mexicans in Texas = bad.

You Nailed it! If that was not the intent of the article, I am at a loss for what else it could be. Mexico is all up in arms about the US attempting to shut down illegal immigration, but at the same time they have taken to shooting any border jumper on thier southern border. This from a country that raises nine kinds of hell when we execute one of thier upstanding citizens that have been convicted of killing people here in the States.

The hypocracy is thick enough to cut with a knife.
