Give Us Your Tired, Give Us Your Hungry, Give Us Your Diseased

So you think all this hysteria (from the right-wingers) about illegal immigration and unprotected borders is pure reactionary hatred? Simple racism? Think again.

Read this and get back to me. Leprosy Outbreak Causes Concern In Northern Arkansas
(Interestingly enough the Arkansas TV station that posted the original article yanked it after just a few hours. Luckily it was captured and reposted elsewhere.)

Seriously. There was a time when the diseased were not permitted entry - and for very good reasons. This country needs to return to sane immigration practices. What is going on now is pathological. I defy anyone to explain to me how the current situation is anything but national suicide...

Immigration = good
Invasion = bad
