Michelle Malkin Takes on Wall Street Journal Elites

Despite its otherwise excellent complement of reporters, op-eders, and editorialists the Wall Street Journal has, since 1984 anyway, been on the wrong side of the illegal immigration issue.On July 3, 1984 the WSJ wrote:

If Washington still wants to “do something” about immigration, we propose a five-word constitutional amendment: There shall be open borders........and

The nativist patriots scream for “control of the borders.” It is nonsense to believe that this unenforceable legislation will provide any such thing. Does anyone want to “control the borders” at the moral expense of a 2,000-mile Berlin Wall with minefields, dogs and machine-gun towers? Those who mouth this slogan forget what America means. They want those of us already safely ensconced to erect giant signs warning: Keep Out, Private Property.

The above was written when Congress was crafting the Simpson-Mazolli bill, the earlier amnesty that was Reagan's biggest blunder. Ms. Malkin has taken on the WSJ effete with a gorilla film that eviscerates their elitist rantings.
