Is immigration an issue of race?
My fellow Brave New Films Blog Host marti1704 put up an interesting piece on Immigration Reform being an ‘issue of race.’
She essentially points out that many people who are against immigration reform legislation are doing it from a racist foundation. They are worried about high numbers of
illegal immigrants, not because of their effects on domestic jobs, the hospital and health care system, or education, but because they will poison the purity that is whiteness.
If you’ve ever seen Birth of a Nation, then this sentiment sounds pretty familiar to you.
