They Get Letters

Another classic from the letters section of the Orange County Register's Opinion page:

Are those 1,200 illegal-alien workers that were rounded up at the Swift & Co. meat-packing plants going to undergo medical screening for contagious diseases?

They were working in a food chain industry. This is just another example of the lack of homeland security.

Yeah, because America's gigantic commercial slaughterhouses and meat-packing plants were well-known paragons of white-tiled scientific antiseptic cleanliness before those filthy dirty illegals came dragging their slime trails in through the front door! Somebody needs to read himself some Fast Food Nation (but won't, because it's a filthy dirty liberal book).

Besides, aren't our illegal immigrants all clean and disease-free, what with all of the time that they spend clogging up our emergency rooms for their free health care?

lovely people here in the county of orange. the letter section today has some gems.

take this one, please..

Once again the righteousness of God is ignored by those who would use His name to swindle America into believing that another amnesty for illegal immigrants is the only humane answer to a complex political problem ["Celebrants tie religion and politics," Local, Dec. 20].

The 1987 amnesty granted to then-illegal immigrants proved that is not the case. Hiding behind the cloak of God's humanity while choosing to disobey His guidance to be honest (to not lie, cheat, steal) does Him no honor. We display the love and power of God by working hard and playing fair. "Do unto others" is the golden rule for a reason.

Those who are in this country illegally, as well as those who aid and abet them, are tearing our great nation apart by insisting this special group get to cut into "the line." The final insult will come when Congress grants yet another politically expedient amnesty.
