And by we, I mean liberals (which I'll cop to for the moment). The truth of the matter is that I usually come down on the side of fairly lenient immigration policies (and I despise the RightWing™ habit of refusing to differentiate between legal and illegal immigration at all).
This morning, The Today Show ran a report (with MSNBC) about the issue of immigrant families being separated because of one or more family members' status. I'm not embedding the entire story because that's not what I'm interested in talking about. If you want to watch the whole thing, you'll find it here. I'm also not going to talk about whether or not the story, as a whole, presents a balanced picture -- I know I saw some opposing viewpoints, but frankly, I wasn't paying all that much attention.
What did catch my attention was the interview portion at the end with Ann Curry talking to (or would that be talking for) three children tragically separated from their parents. Watch the video.
Sorry, but it just seems to me that having Ann practically sobbing over these poor kids' plight is just ammunition for Rush and Sean and their ilk. I'm fairly certain the poor urchins could make the point for themselves if Ann would just ask some questions and pretend to be a journalist.
