CNN's Van Jones says that Laura Ingraham's commentary on Fox News about the
"changing demographics" in the US is the same argument made by white supremacists.

When did this country ever vote on who gets to immigrate to this country? Was there a special decision for the Irish and Italians..., of course not. I don’t know what Ingraham hopes to convey, but it sounds unamerican to me.

@glitterbag,
Our country might have had a tradition of borders closed to military invaders, but I don't recall any long history of the borders closed to migrants. When was the first immigration law, anyway? For most of the nation's history, all you had to do to move here was physically transport yourself into our territory.

@Blickers,
This is very naïve. Probably the most notorious immigration act was the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. It prohibited the immigration of Chinese laborers (wealthy or at least well-off Chinese were not excluded by the act). It was the beginning of a racist period on the west coast which alleged a "Yellow Peril." The Immigration Act of 1924 was aimed at southern Europeans--primarily Catholics--and eastern Europeans, as well as Jews and Asians other than the Chinese. The Immigration Act of 1924 set quotas, and thereafter, quotas were a means of excluding "undesirable" classes of immigrants. The Chinese exclusion act was not repealed until 1947. The first immigration act was in 1790, and required immigrants to prove two years of residence before applying for citizenship. An immigration exclusion act, the Page Act, in 1875 allowed for the appointment of port inspectors, who were to exclude prostitutes and criminals. The criteria for determining who might be considered a prostitute of a criminal were wonderfully vague. An act in 1891 expanded the list of undesirables, to include "idiots, insane persons and paupers." President Roosevelt signed an immigration act in 1903 which excluded anarchists, and allowed port inspectors to question would-be immigrants about their political beliefs. Despite what Emma Lazarus wrote, the the tired, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free were likely to be turned back.

Laura Ingraham Blows Loudest Dog Whistle Ever In Rant About Demographics.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham didn’t just blow a dog whistle about race and immigration, she used a megaphone to spew her vile brand of hatred towards immigrants that are allegedly destroying the America that she claims to love so much.

I thought by now one or two of the ultra-rights would have showed to claim Nancy Pelosi is a bigger racist than Ingraham.........I’m disappointed.

@Real Music,
This is interesting in light of the war on journalism. Laura Ingraham is expressing a point of view that has some factual basis (there at changing demographics that do upset some people). The result is not a discussion, but what appears to be an attempt to silence commentary from this perspective.

The war on journalism goes both ways. I wish there could be more dialog and less demonizing.

Why do the weenies always claim that criticism is an attempt to silence people? Sounds like Hawkeye in days of old here. Any "war on journalists" would be enhanced if one were not to criticize (so-called) journalists like Ingraham.
