Crossing the Line

A Collection of Perspectives on American Freedoms Under Fire

Crossing the Line

The U.S. Supreme Court will rule this month on legislation that forces police to scrutinize Latinos, both immigrants and citizens. President Barack Obama has deported 1.5 million people. And 41 states are attempting to limit the voting rights of young people and minorities.

In "Crossing the Line," Village Voice Media offers a short collection of viewpoints and artwork to honor the passing of the American dream.

Bordering on Revolution: A hostile Supreme Court. A feckless Obama administration. America's war on Mexicans has gone too far, says Village Voice Media executive editor Michael Lacey.

Welcome Back, Jim Crow: New laws in dozens of states could take out Barack Obama this fall.

Constant Deportations Lead to Days of Rage: The U.S. Supreme Court And President Obama leave the undocumented and their allies no choice but to escalate civil disobedience.

Love the Beans, Hate the Beaner: Mexican Food Defeated America. Now, Mexicans in America Will Defeat SB 1070.

PLUS: Xico Artists Featured in "Crossing the Line"

That's rich. Asking me to stay on topic like you've been doing the same the whole time, right? What was the topic again? Why the Village Voice is being raided by anti-immigration nationalists with nothing to say other than get the hell out of my country? I don't want to argue with people who really actually could not care less about the wellbeing of other people and just try to hide behind some fake concern for their own rights and country. It's cool though, not like we pumped all sorts of money and guns into those countries south of the border! Just ask General Attorney Eric Holder! (See, he's on Obama's cabinet and I'm criticizing him, so maybe I'm not a liberal!) At any rate, please continue to enlighten me. You clearly have to much of value to add here and I just love taking a few moments of my day to tell you and other people who talk like you that I think you're wrong and explaining why. Frankly, if you weren't referring to "illegals" and "Latinos" as mutually exclusive groups or didn't spout out a bunch of crap I hear like a revolving door from Fox and CBS and all the other conservative media outlets, then I'd be a little more inclined to follow your advice.

We are being invaded by Latin Americans from Mexico, Central and South America as well as Asians and Arabs. Some of these invaders do not have our best interests i mind. It is the job of the Federal government to protect our borders and control immigration no matter what race they are. The Federal Government also has the job to be sure that my Constitutional right to have my vote counted and not be offset by illegal and fraudulant activities. For those of you concerned about peoples rights, start at home.

I am a pollworker and I am extremely offended by your comment. The ONLY thing that separates the U.S. from 3rd world shit holes like Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, etc. is the integrity of our elections system. Obviously, you prefer a crooked system like your illegal alien amigos have in their countries. YOU MUST BE AN ANCHOR BABY, because you think just like they do - "ignore the laws, they don't apply to me"........people like you DESERVE a 3rd world society. That's how Mexico became the cesspool that it has become, because people like YOU minimize the bad behavior of others. And you do it BECAUSE they're latino - so you're a racist too.

The "truth" is that YOU PROFIT FROM ILLEGAL ALIEN IMMIGRATION. You are as much of a scumbag as the people you "represent". The more illegal aliens, the better your business, however, the WORSE for your fellow citizens and the rest of the country. Of course, money is the object, isn't it? As it is so for the narco terrorists. ANYTHING for a buck. PENDEJO.

Then don't tell me what kind of "spending" I should be worrying about - it's not what this article was about. Try to stay on topic, if that's possible.

Maybe you'll have better luck communicating en Espanol, because you obviously failed your ESOL class. Your comment is unreadable except for the racist name calling. What makes you think I'm white? You can tell that over the internet? I could be black, I could be Asian, I could be Muslim. Either way, latinos are the most racist group of people on the planet, and your post proves it.

What truth? That there are a lot of people who are seriously misinformed about our immigration policy, or that there is a disturbing lack of compassion and humanity among its critics? Yes, that truth hurts. It kills, even.

No one can tell you what opinions you can and cannot have, but I reserve the right to the opinion that you're wrong. I just hope out national policy catches up with the rest of the human species. We're all in this together, like it or not.
