it’s about that time…

It’s time for me to write another column for the JS. I want to write about immigration but it’s not exactly local and sort of a dead issue. The only things I hear on the news lately are comments about how some criminal was also an illegal immigrant. Well, just an FYI, there are plenty of U.S. citizen criminals too! Not that I think undocumented violent criminals should not be deported, but I think that sort of talk just stirs up more fear and prejudice in people. It would be intersting to know the percent of “illegal” immigrants who have committed crimes of various sorts, DUIs, rapes, robberies etc., compared to U.S. citizens. I have a feeling the numbers would be very comparable.

Anyway, if anybody has a brilliant idea for a column, let me know.
