El Paso-centric info and commentary from the Center of North America

Immigrants and haters

An editorial posted in NPT asserted this fact: Numerous studies by independent researchers and government commissions over the past 100 years repeatedly and consistently have found that, in fact, immigrants are less likely to commit crimes or to be behind bars than are the native-born. This is true for the nation as a whole, as well as for cities with large immigrant populations such as Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Miami, and cities along the U.S.-Mexico border such as San Diego and El Paso.

The El Paso Times reported this today: Talk-show host Dom Giordano of CBS Radio’s WPHT will travel to El Paso for two shows about drug smuggling and immigration issues. … Immigration will be on the minds of Giordano and his crew. They will be joined in El Paso by the owner of Philadelphia’s Geno’s Steaks, Joey Vento, who stood in the national spotlight in 2005 after hanging a sign on his shop that read, “This is America. When ordering, please speak English.” “America seems to be now for everybody but Americans,” Vento said in an interview Monday with the El Paso Times. In El Paso, Giordano said, he will interview and ride along with border agents. His show will broadcast from El Paso on July 15 and 16.

  1. Dom Giordano should go back to Italy (following his own advice). City Council should pass a well-reasoned resolution condemning his show.

    And is the Border Patrol really co-operating with this stunt? What a waste of tax-payer money.

    say good morning 
    (My suggestion: talk to senators who have school age kids. Talking to an old senator about our food system is akin to slamming your head against a cinderblock. When I want someone to listen to me about vaccines, I only speak to those with young children. Everyone else says “What’s the big deal, we all got vaccines and we’re all fine.”)
