Misleading headline of the day

A SC Times LTE on immigration it titled, "Don’t forget danger posed by illegal immigrants".

The letter goes on to talk about what happened at Swift & Co. plants across the US in the past month. Illegal documents were acquired via Social Security Numbers, allowing illegal immigrants to work.

I guess when I saw danger in the title, I would have assumed that the writer would have made some correlations between crime rates in these cities and illegal immigration. Perhaps the numbers of convicted felons that have come here illegally. No such luck.

Is our immigration policy in need of serious reform. Yes. Imminent danger? That's your call.

Looks like Story Chat has turned into a bad South Park episode.

"They took our jobs!"
