Actions Speak Louder than Boos

Here’s a letter that I sent today to the Washington Times:

Michelle Malkin is
hot’n’bothered
by the booing of Miss USA at the Miss Universe pageant
in Mexico City ("Hostility…and hypocrisy," June 1).  She even wants
President Bush to "speak out against" this dissing of America.

But
actions speak louder than boos.  The actions of millions of Mexicans
who come to America seeking opportunity demonstrate a profound
affection for American civilization – a civilization rooted in an
openness and optimism that Ms. Malkin and her xenophobic comrades want
to replace with a nativist nationalism rooted in ignorance and fear.

Sincerely,
Donald J. Boudreaux
