Resist!

Document Actions
In response to your Sept. 4 story, "States crack down on illegal immigrants": I care about the West. I don’t want to walk in a forest which sports two humans for every tree, or hike on an ocean beach that is solid human bodies — Coney Island, for instance.

Resisting immigration seems to be the only way we can resist being overwhelmed by our species’ success in carrying out the religious dictate "Go forth and multiply." Am I a nasty redneck cave-dweller? No, I’m an old Socialist who is so democratic that she believes other species, as well as her own, deserve their place on this one tiny life-supporting speck in the universe.
