Ammunition for the Nativists

It's unfortunate that a Pakistani born and naturalized American citizen is in the news as the suspect involved in the Times Square bomb that fortunately fizzled the other day.

Here's a link to a Times article on it.

The far right, wingnut, nativists among us will jump all over this at a time when Arizona just passed a law which has the potential of giving people in police uniforms license to act like Gestapo.

Look for there to be a hue and cry against immigration to the extent that shouts for border closings might be heard.
