FROM CNN:

Hispanics march in Milwaukee against immigration bills

Thousands of demonstrators marched in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Thursday to oppose tough anti-immigration legislation sponsored by their Republican congressman Jim Sensenbrenner.

House Resolution 4437 would make all undocumented immigrants felons and require all employers to verify the immigration status of its employees.

So the Old Media has now effectively redefined the terms - strengthening existing laws against ILLEGAL immigration is now considered "anti-immigration".

So much for REPORTING current events - now they're actually REWRITING current events.

The media is actually CHANGING the wording of this bill which targets ILLEGAL immigration and is already casting the terms of this debate as if there is absolutely NO difference between LEGAL immigration and ILLEGAL immigration.

That's like saying a law that increases the penalty for shop-lifting is an "anti-shopping" law that hurts all paying store customers.

And if you read down later on you'll notice the media helping drum up support and helping bring out protesters for this "anti-latino", "anti-immigrant" law by advertising how many people they want/expect to show up at these rallies.


Hey - how many Palistinian flags do you think we'll see flying at these "anti-immigration law" protest rallies?

BTW.... The Republicans had REALLY watch their step on this bill - the Fifth Column seditionists in the media will do a hell of a job casting this issue as being a Republican-backed "anti-Hispanic" bill brought up in an election year.

The Democrats are all lined up against it and, with help from their willing accomplices in the media, they stand to gain a LOT of seats against the Republicans if they can successfully swing the milquetoast-moderates and growing Hispanic voter block their way in this year's Congressional election (which is all this about for them).

Gotta love this one-
"Critics of the legislation say Sensenbrenner is trying to deport the 11 million to 12 million people who are in the United States illegally.

WTF? I'm really trying to wrap my mind around this concept, but I'll be damned if I can find anything wrong with this.
