Gingrich's Vile Fear Tactics

The utterly loathsome Newt Gingrich, prominent conservative Republican, strikes another low blow. Yes, illegal immigrants are more a more dangerous threat than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. (You can find a sane discussion of the effect of illegal immigration on crime here.)

Yeah, when the GOP is slumping, you can always whip up the Republican base by bashing the Mexicans. I mean, those Hispanics are so...dark and menacing and hard to understand. No wonder conservatives hate them. They're so different, after all, from... actual people.
