3. Tea Party flakes

I was during the last election cycle a Democrat precinct chair. As such I felt it was my duty to spend the day hanging out at the "politics" border. There were a bunch a GOP button types with cameras accosting hispanic voters waving cameras and saying they'd be checking if they are legal. I got as far as asking them who were they and they self identified as Tea Party Republicans taking the state back when they chose the wrong victim. This is Texas, and beyond native americans, who got here next. The target in question was an acquaintance, and a descendant of Juan Sequin, one of the signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence, one of the leaders of the Texicans revolt against Mexico. I sat back and enjoyed the ensuing fireworks as he proceeded to tear into them, pointing out that Texicans helped create the state, and chose to join the US. They left. But what can we do about the neo-Republicans who assume if a person is latino, they are illegal?
