Anti-immigration types don't support the troops

Atrios has a great catch from La Queen Sucia:

According to the National Center for Immigration Law, one in ten U.S. soliders who have DIED in Iraq have been immigrants. Five percent of those serving in our military are illegal immigrants.

The first soldier to die for the United States in the current war in Iraq was Marine Lance Cpl. Jose Gutierrez, an illegal immigrant from Guatemala.

He died for you.

You are not in Iraq fighting for anyone. You are home, sending lie-riddled missives to strangers at 3 a.m. on your computer.

Enough said.

(Underline my emphasis)

5%. That's real numbers these days.



Evidently the 5% number is all immigrants.

But also it appears that the current Republican governor of California was in effect an illegal alien.
