Anti-Illegal Immigrant != "Anti-Immigrant"

Attempts to control/curb illegal immigration are not thereby "anti-immigrant." They might be immoral, misguided, counterproductive, whatever...though normally they are not...but they are not "anti-immigrant."

This is a simple point, and I'm sure that the editorial staff of the NYT understands it. That makes this editorial dishonest in the extreme.

I'm not supporting the legislation in question. I'm merely objecting to the transparently dishonest rhetoric in the editorial. The immigration issue is tough enough without muddying the waters with this nonsense.
