Remember the liberal, pro-amnesty for illegal aliens mantra following the 2006 elections? The one that had it that politicians in any way critical of illegal immigration lost because of that stance?
Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media to get that message out, it wasn't true then; it's not true now, and it's unlikely to be true in the future.
Consider the fate of Lou Barletta, the Republican Mayor of Hazleton, Pennsylvania.
Barletta, a former businessman faces with saving his town from rampant violence and crime by illegal aliens, personally and heavily promoted local legislation that would punish landlords who rent to and businesses that hire illegals.
Well, Mayor Barletta just won the Republican primary nomination for his third term - getting an almost unheard of 94 percent of the vote, according to the Associated Press.
Oh, and by the way, Mayor Barletta also won the Democratic nomination - with a write-in campaign that he began only several weeks ago.
Our congratulations to Mayor Barletta, Republican, Democrat, Hero of Hazleton and a political symbol of those who fight for what is right. His stunning victory should send a strong signal to politicians both local and national whose courage in the face of mobs has thus far been significantly less noticeable.May 18, 2007
