Politics: where absolutely anything is OK as long as the right team does it.

Speaking of illegal immigrants

I was listening to the radio the other day, and a couple of law professors were on talking about John Roberts.

Years ago, the Supreme Court ruled that children of illegal aliens should be allowed an education because education is a cornerstone of America and we're punishing people who didn't choose to be here, as well as their children and their children's children.

John Roberts has come out against this ruling, and accused his (party? firm? I forget which) of not doing everything they could do to oppose it.

He's also against Affirmative Action, and wants to put the weight of evidence on the cause rather than the effect of a law. That is, a law is discriminatory not because it actually causes any problems for one particular group, but because that was the intent of the law, which is almost impossible to prove.
