Default Re: Immigration Nation

mvanthony: Not every restrictionist is a racist, but Krikorian and CIS are. It is indisputable that Krikorian worked for the Federation for Immigration Reform -- and it indisputable that FAIR is a racist organization. And CIS has ties to FAIR. Why Dalmia didn't point this out is beyond me. But having finished watching the debate, it just seems to me Krikorian was so ineffective because he is defensive about his positions. Dalmia, in my view, was actually fairly civil, even after she caught on that Krikorian was not making good-faith arguments. His questioning of the emotional assimilation of highly skilled immigrants was a new spin on the old Know Nothing argument: Don't let those Catholics in because their ultimate allegiance is to the Pope! Is anyone fooled by this guy?
