Credit Where Credit is Due

At long last David Brooks has written a good column. In his article, Brooks takes aim at a lot of the anti-immigrant, or more accurately, anti-Mexican immigrant talking points that are recycled by Samuel P. Huntington. The jist of Huntington's argument is that hispanic immigrants are somehow different from all previous ethnic and national groups that have immigrated to the United States and represent a new challenge to the American system, the "Hispanic Challenge" as Huntington calls it. Fortunately, the David Brooks dispatches it in his Times piece so I don't have to.
