I find it weird that the very right-wing Washington Times has a very appropriate piece regarding the Arizona immigration law. (Link in title of pose.) It points out Mexico's hypocrisy. I believe some of the facts about Mexican enforcement are wrong, and the quotes from rabid republicans are gratuitous (as can be expected from this paper) but the overall point is a good one to make right now. (I tried with various liberal media, none accepted.) I wish the more liberal media outlets had the spine to point out hypocrisy when they see it, even if they condemn Arizona's law. It helps inform people of what's going on, of the politicking involved, and in this instance, could push both the government of Mexico and of the US to do something about treatment of immigrants in general, on a federal level.
