The Better Angels of Our Nature: Responding to Arizona's Immigration Law

Wrong. Again what I have written is being misrepresented.

The Arizona law is unjust as it profiles against the Latino community.

As it relates to immigration reform, that is a federal issue that has to be taken on at the federal level. The system is broken and it must be fixed.

This is not about how this law would target, "Communists, socialists, trade unionists, Jews and me."

You are taking the quote out of context. The quote was intended to illustrate how we are on a slippery slope - how the erosion of civil rights and human rights of one people eventually become the erosion of civil rights and human rights of all.

Martin Niemoeller's words in the aftermath of World War II were speaking to this in the context of his period of time. His words are true today in our context.
