immigrant identity

Journalists are constantly bemoaning the sorry financial condition of the publishing industry. I suggest that if they stopped pushing their own prejudices in reporting news stories the industry might be more robust. The N Y Times story reprinted in the Post reporting on high paying , white collar jobs held by "immigrants" is an example of the insidious injection of political correctness constantly encountered in media stories concerning "immigrants". The reporter neglects to mention these people are legal immigrants. The failure to discern any difference between legal and illegal immigrants is a constant theme in newspapers and leads to a , I believe, a purposeful confusion. It allows people who are concerned about the swelling illegal immigration population to be demonized as anti-immigrant.
