Comment: Vigilante Sentenced To Death - According to a recent news report, an Arizona jury has sentenced another anti-immigration vigilante to death for the murder of an immigrant family. Many anti-immigrationists have no respect for law and order and act as vigilantes. We commend the Arizona jury for reaching a just result thus reminding the anti-immigrationists that they are not above the law.
