And they've hired a Dallas PR firm to convince Americans that illegal
immigration is OK. Today, KFI-AM 640 (Los Angeles) interviewed Rob
Allyn, owner of the PR firm in question. Allyn was mostly evasive, and
when KFI's John and Ken asked what made it ok for Mexico to punish
illegal immigrants but insist that we not punish theirs, he refused to
answer. He repeatedly called John and Ken racist and xenophobic even
after they pointed out that they were only opposed to ILLEGAL
immigration, not all immigration.

On the show's website there is a link to archived shows. I hope they
post the interview. It was ... enlightening. Apparently the attitude of
many immigrants -- that Americans owe them something - trickles down
from Mexico City, because the Mexican federal government seems
incensed that we are proposing erecting a fence to make it harder for
the illegals to cross our borders.

What's Fox doing to improve his own economy and bring up his own
citizens' standard for living? That's the real question.

Incidentally, Rob Allyn's corporate web site is
