Texasses of the year: The Dallas Morning News

Another mainstream media outlet plays the sympathy card on illegal immigration. The editorial board of the Dallas Morning News have made illegal immigrants "Texans of the Year for 2007". I don't even know where to begin with this idiocy from the papers editorial board. But, Michelle Malkin does a good job of reminding the editors that they should stop wearing horse blinders when they look at issues like illegal immigration. Here are some of the questions Ms. Malkin has of the Dallas Morning News editorial board. They are good ones indeed:

"Question: Why is it that the human face they want us to see belongs only to the law-breaker…and not the human face of those who have to enforce the law or bear the costs of lax enforcement?"

Question: Why is the “illegal immigrant” the “Texan of the Year”–and not, say, the “Border Patrol agent?”"

"Question: Why is the “illegal immigrant” the “Texan of the Year”–and not, say, the victims of catch-and-release and failed deportation policies…like 15-year-old Dani Countryman of Kaufman, Texas–who was murdered in August by two illegal aliens with prior records who had entered the U.S. from Mexico illegally?."
