Post Why The U.S. Should Help Illegal Mexican Immigrants
by: Babu G. Ranganathan

I am Christian, Conservative, and Republican. Having said that, let me say that we are committing a great injustice in how we are dealing with Mexican immigration and the status of illegal Mexican workers in the United States. Congress ought to support President Bush’s guest-worker program for illegal Mexican workers in the United States. We do owe something to Mexico and its people.

In the 19th century our nation, which was experiencing great industrial, technological and economic growth, sought to expand to the Pacific Ocean. But, there was one big problem. Mexico was in the way. Western land belonged to Mexics chronically malnourished and died at the age of 34 of some completely preventable cause, like dysentery or typhoid fever. And, being a superstitious lot, his fellow villagers killed his family and burned his house down after he died.

Cheered on by the permanently hysterical activists at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, regulators and politicians across our nation are starting to weigh bans on trans fat in restaurants.

Chicago's City Council considered the idea as early as June (after having banned the French delicacy foie gras already). New York City's health commissar proposed such a ban last month, and a New Jersey state legislator followed suit shortly thereafter. Even D.C. and L.A. are looking into it.

If all these governments are looking into it, trans fat bans must be worthwhile, right? After all, these are politicians and political appointees we're talking about. We can be certain they have their priorities in order. As we wrote in the Post:

But surely things were better [in the time of Frans, the medieval serf]. Sure, we may have running water and modern medicine and Motown records, but we also have fast food. Who wants a trade-off like that?”
