You just flunked fourth grade arithmetic. If in fact there are 10
million undocumented persons in the US, they represent about one
in thirty, not one in ten. But they are not "one out of every ten people
you see as you walk down any street in a large city" as large numbers of
them are concentrated in a very few areas. With this kind of imagery you
are contributing to what the late Barbara Jordan described as the "furor"
over immigration. You should be ashamed of yourself, not for making a
simple arithmetic error, but for contributing to public hysteria by posing
that wholly erroneous analogy. It is what I have learned to expect from
FAIR not from ILW.COM.
