Pinkerton says that the feds will get serious when we get a consensus, which he thinks we're moving towards. Not gonna happen.
Most Americans want something to be done about illegal immigration. But, the entire establishment is on the other side: they want the power that mass immigration brings them, together with the money. Plus, it dilutes the power of mainstream America. They aren't going to change their minds. They might change their tactics, but they're still going to keep pushing what they've been pushing.
The way to strike back is for mainstream America to discredit those visible elites who promote mass immigration, such as bloggingheads' own Shikha Dalmia
or those who've lied about the Arizona
law (a partial list at the link). I don't mean that in the convivial bloggingheads way: I mean that in the "make unemployable" way. The problem is finding anyone else willing to help.
