The above article out of San Antonio Texas is offensive on several accounts. In my estimation the most offensive aspect of the article is the first paragraph where we are informed that
"U.S. Hispanic groups and activists on Thursday called for a moratorium on workplace raids to round up illegal immigrants, saying they were reminiscent of Nazi crackdowns on Jews in the 1930s."
The workplace raids to round up illegal are in no way reminiscent of Nazi crackdowns of Jews in the 1930's To say make such a claim is absurd and exploiting people's ignorance of the Nazis of the 1930's.
The work place raids to round up illegal immigrants is a legitimate exercise of an independent Republic to enforce its laws. The Nazi crackdown on Jews in the 1930's was the abuse of power by a tyrant/dictator against a designated portion of it citizenship. The Jews were singled out as German citizens as people that were not as fully evolved and consequently an inferior race. They were forced to live in ghettos and taken to concentration camps where they endured unimaginable abuse of all kinds. (this despite what the president of Iran and David Duke says) They were deprived of their natural rights as citizens.
There is absolutly no comparison to be made between the German Nazis rounding up their citizens for horrific abuse and the United States of America rounding up people who are in the country illegally to send them back to their country or origin!
It is hard to give any credence to Hispanic groups and activist that want to make this kind of comparison.
