Right-wing lawmakers: Anti-immigrant? Who? Us?

You knew some kind of order had come down from the right-wing powers that be when people like Sean Hannity all of a sudden turned all warm and fuzzy on immigrants.

Now, it appears that the new conservative 180 degree switcheroo has trickled down to the state level. Today, the North Carolina House Select Committee on the State’s Role on Immigration Policy — a group dominated by ultra-conservative lawmakers that had, just months ago, provided a platform for Alamance County’s anti-immigrant sheriff to prattle on at one of its meetings —  met to issue its report in anticipation of the 2013 session. 

Somewhat amazingly, the meeting lasted all of about five very sober minutes and featured only the perfunctory approval of a report that appears merely to make general recommendations and offer no specific legislative proposals at all. No “show us your papers law” proposal — no nothing.

Wow, what a difference and election can make!

It should be fun to see whether the anti-immigrant groups like ALIPAC and NC FIRE are down with the national right-wing marching orders or are, instead, crying foul and calling the House Speaker Tillis a traitor to the cause. Stay tuned.
