THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE

The Los Angeles Times is reporting something I suspected was true, but it is nice to see documentation. THe paper analyzed the backgrounds of the 500 Californians who have died in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and found that 59 were immigrants. Dozens more were first generation children of immigrants. Does anyone see any irony here? The antis regularly question whether today's immigrants are really assimilating as past generations have. And they claim that immigrants are just coming over here to get our goodies  - our welfare, emergency room care, public schools, etc. - when they're not claiming they're coming to steal our jobs. How sad that these types of nonsense claims still find believers when immigrants are dying every week for their new country.  Sorry for not posting this earlier, but I only just saw the article today.
