Naming illegal immigrant as 'Texan of the Year' prompts outcry in Dallas

DALLAS — When editorial writers at The Dallas Morning News chose the illegal immigrant as the newspaper's Texan of the Year, they expected some criticism.

But not this: 800 blog postings and more than 150 letters to the editor. Some of the critics threatened to cancel subscriptions or pressure advertisers to stop doing business with the paper.

"What an asinine article!!!" exclaimed one reader.

"What part of stupid are you guys that support illegal aliens? This puts us ALL in danger," another wrote.

That was mighty dumb for them. Another moonbat newspaper. Texan of the year are for people who do good things and help people, not break the law.

Now if we could just get them to build the damn fence!

Let nothing frighten you.

God never changes.
Patience attains all that it strives for.

God alone suffices.

Just a lousy publicity stunt....that backfired.  Sounds like something my local paper would do.  Idiots.

Fixed.

They Alienated everyone by doing this.
I may not lock my doors while sitting at a red light and a black man is near, but I sure as hell grab on tight to my wallet when any democrats are close by.
