Register reporter rips the Dream Team students

O.C. Register reporter Dena Bunis published an article this weekend slamming the O.C. Dream Team – immigrant children who grew up here, graduated from public schools and now want a path to citizenship and college.  Here are a few excerpts from Bunis’ diatribe:

But one has to wonder about their tactics. A group of them sat in the middle of the Hart Senate Office Building on Tuesday. Others parked themselves in Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Sen. John McCain’s offices. And still others are staging a hunger strike in front of Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s Westwood office.

Some say what these young people are doing is in the great American tradition of Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement.

There’s a difference. Those who marched in Selma and went to jail for equal rights had the U.S. Constitution on their side.

No one is suggesting that these young people have a legal right to be here.

These kids are heroes. I wouldn’t expect Bunis to get it.  I wonder if she got these talking points from Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez’ office?

About Zorro

Yes, Zorro is gay. Zorro is gay in San Francisco, black in South Africa, an Asian in Europe, a Chicano in San Ysidro, an anarchist in Spain, a Palestinian in Israel, a Mayan Indian in the streets of San Cristobal, a Jew in Germany, a Gypsy in Poland, a Mohawk in Quebec, a pacifist in Bosnia, a single woman on the Metro at 10pm, a peasant without land, a gang member in Santa Ana, an unemployed worker, an unhappy student and, of course, a good government advocate in Anaheim. Zorro is all the exploited, marginalized, oppressed minorities resisting and saying `Enough'. He or she is every minority who is now beginning to speak and every majority that must shut up and listen. He or she is every untolerated group searching for a way to speak. Everything that makes power and the good consciences of those in power uncomfortable -- this is Zorro.
