Ann Coulter Hits the Marklink
The august New York Times recently explained that illegal immigration has no effect on unemployment because illegal immigrants compete only with "native-born workers without a high school diploma." As noted by Vanderbilt law professor Carol Swain, author of "Debate Immigration," that means black workers. Illegal immigration, she says, harms blacks "the most because they're disproportionately low-skilled." In liberals' view, blacks don't count. They aren't -- in the Times' words -- "the bulk of native workers." According to the Times, Obama's black supporters were dismayed at a White House meeting last year when cards were passed out to campaign donors with talking points about how Obama had helped various groups. There were cards for women, Jews, gays and lesbians. But no talking points for how Obama had helped black Americans. So Joe Biden tells a black audience that Romney wants to "put y'all back in chains," and MSNBC hosts claim opposition to Obama's re-election is based on "racial hatred," and the Democrats believe their work is done.
