What's Mallard raving about today?
I like the way Mallard casually throws "learn English" in there. Like all legal immigrants are fluent in English and difficulty with English is only a mark of illegal immigration.
I was recently reading a book on the Great Depression and one of the things that struck me most about it is that the same immigrant-bashing was going on then, only it was the Italians and the Irish at the time.
All of which is to say: this isn't about immigration, Mallard. It's thinly (very thinly) veiled hatred of "the Other."
