Navarrette’s “10 Ugly Things…” List

As one of the nation’s most high-profile Latino syndicated columnists, Ruben Navarrette Jr. provides a regular dose of U.S. politics from a “Latino perspective” to numerous newspapers.  I haven’t always seen eye-to-eye with him on certain issues, but I have to admit, he really is hitting the mark with the issue of immigration.  Unlike most of the pundits out there, he finds critically-nuanced and (often) humorous ways to express the kinds of political analyses produced by a thourough understanding of both the past and present.  As a professor of Chicano/Latino Studies, let me assure you such views are relatively few in mainstream publications.

Case in point: his recent “10 ugly things about the immigration debate” list.  While it is incisive and funny, it is also good.
