NY Times Editorial Steals 2006 Scene Headline

Posted By on Mon, Feb 2, 2009 at 1:45 PM

OK, steal is a strong word, probably just a coincidence, but this editorial from Saturday, titled The Nativists Are Restless, uses the same title as this story I wrote back in '06. Here's the money quote from The Times:
Americans want immigration solved, and they realize that mass deportations will not do that. When you add the unprecedented engagement of growing numbers of Latino voters in 2008, it becomes clear that the nativist path is the path to permanent political irrelevance. Unless you can find a way to get rid of all the Latinos.
Our story focused more on individual acts of violence and discrimination against immigrants here in Tennessee, but I share The Times' oppinion: Anti-immigrant rhetoric is the path to political Siberia.
