Neocons will fall for their myths over evidence seven days a week!
Liberals seem unwilling to believe Powell when he defends GW's decision to go to Iraq, but they believe him just fine when he says things that agree with them ... like his statements of approval of Obama.

I believe that immigration as a whole has also changed - and this is just my poor take on it. The first immigrants came here not for economical reasons only but for the freedom America has to offer. Then you had the wave of immigrants that came here only for economical reasons but soon also changed their way of life. The previous generations of immigrants did not have the internet and phone communications with the relatives they left behind. For me, to call my parents over 20 years ago cost me over $3 per minute. Even with working three jobs to support myself in college I could not afford more than a couple minutes a month. Now, you have internet, skype, 3 cents per minute phone calls or even better a $900 round trip flight. There is no desire to leave everything behind and start anew exactly because of the constant interaction with the mentality you left behind.
