Your point is not valid. In the US, you are right, there is tremendous anti-immigrant bias. We saw it in the health care debate. But the US government, at least not yet, does not ofered its authority to go around rounding up foreign workers and their children and subject them to deportation. Further, where are these rabbis in tending to this population being their advocates for that section of the population that is poor, powerless and strangers? Where is their moral example? Why do they show this concern for poor Sephardim but relate to the foreign population not out of a sense of cmpassion but contempt. In the US oppostion to the illegals is economic above all else. Here with this Yishai and his crew, the objection is a moral one. Hardly exemplary, more ike a judeoHindu mentality toward the untouchables.
