I kept hearing reports about New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin’s latest outburst, but I didn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe that what he said got so little play, so I went digging. And there it was:
At a recent seminar about the rebuilding efforts, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin asked the crowd: “How do I ensure that New Orleans is not overrun by Mexican workers?”
I have absolutely no idea how to react to this. I’m feeling several responses bubbling up:
1) Now we see what it takes to get someone like Nagin to actually LOOK at the illegal alien problem.
2) Mayor Nagin, are you familiar with “don’t look a gift horse in the mouth?” You’re getting your help, and someone else is picking up the tab. Stop bitching and say “thank you.”
3) If any white politician had said such a thing, they’d be lynched.
4) Why the hell is it that any junior reporter at any TV station, radio station, or newspaper can find illegal aliens to quote for a story, but the government can’t do the same? Maybe ICE ought to just hire journalists to find them.
