A NY Times article made sure to describe Murrieta as “middle-class conservative”.
“Nowhere have the Central American immigrants been met with such tremendous anger as they have here, in this middle-class conservative community about 90 miles southeast of Los Angeles.”
What difference does it make what type of city or town it is? But it says nothing about what type people the illegals are. Who knows? Isn’t it funny how that works? Suddenly the citizens of the community are scrutinized under a microscope instead of the problem.
And racism? It wouldn’t matter who or what nationality they were. But the fact is they are who they are. They could be Canadians, Costa Ricans, Argentineans or Brazilians.(by nationality not race) The same questions and problems would result. But they aren’t.
Murrieta already has a 25% Latino population. So don’t claim the racist crap. If they bussed in white transients from LA, and dumped them off, it would be the same problem and a similar reaction. Then to have the resources of the community left to deal with it is just crazy.
“We didn’t ask for this problem — it was just dumped at our doorstep,” said Mayor Alan Long, who has lived here most of his life and told residents he planned to send a “fat bill” to President Obama. “This is a nationwide problem, and little Murrieta has taken the lead.”
Why is it when they come here, or Mexicans already here, always refer to “our people”? Yet when anyone generalizes who they are, they complain about stereotyping their people. I see TV commercials by Latino organizations talking about expressing the voice and speaking up for “our people”. Really, what about speaking up for Americans? That seems to be frowned on.
A local resident objected saying:
“We came here because they are attacking our people, people just like us,” said Ana Larios, 42, a Mexican immigrant who moved to Murrieta with her children from Los Angeles nearly a decade ago. “I never knew people felt this way until now. It’s shocking and embarrassing.”
Funny, if she didn’t notice anything, it makes the case for the community. Ten years and she didn’t feel it because it isn’t there. Now she wants to imply some sort of racism after admitting that there is none.
I saw a sign somewhere: ‘justice not deportation’. Since when is deportation injustice?
