On the issue of immigration, political candidates feel the need to speak strongly, even though there is no immigration crisis. The combination of these two factors often leads to absurdity.
That’s what happened to Faye Walters, a Green Party candidate down in South Carolina’s 4th congressional district. Walters says that, if elected, she would “support balanced immigration by allocating immigration quotas to each nation, thereby preventing dominance of any one nationality or ethnic sub-culture in America’s ‘melting pot’ tradition.”
Hmmm… I have the nagging idea that, maybe, one ethnicity has already dominated “America’s melting pot tradition”. Where could I be getting that idea from, I wonder?
