Looking South, Heading North
The fallout from the April 9 immigration rally continues: There's a big billboard greeting traffic heading north out of downtown on the Tollway that reads, "No Guest Worker/Amnesty!! Call Senators Now!!!" The billboard, which will only be up for the day, was paid for by a group called Citizens for Immigration Reform of Dallas, and, according to its Web site, the group has a few rallies of its own in the works. Personally, I'm looking forward to the May 6 "Reckoning," in which "the good citizens of the United States of America with the help of the patriotic media will be in Crawford, Texas to lawfully and peacefully demonstrate against George W. Bush's lack of enforcement of immigration law." The announcement goes on to chastise Bush for "being a Mexican president and the best friend an illegal alien can have." --Jesse Hyde
