As a people, we have grown up some. I don't think even Bush would try something like Roosevelt did with the Japanese Americans during WWII. Do you remember the uproar after 9-11 with the roundups of Arabs and the FBI surveillance of the Muslim community in Detroit? We still have our share of xenophobes and racists, but it's not as bad as in the past. They are less tolerated. I think Lou Dobbs was stunned by the recent ICE raid in Colorado. More than 100 illegal Mexicans were rounded up in one raid and shipped to an undisclosed location. Families were torn apart and incommunicado. Children were separated from parents. One schoolteacher ended up caring for one of her students because the parents had been disappeared by ICE. Even Fox News was critical. Illegal Mexicans are not treated well here.
