The Mayor's Name Is Hippo

As if anybody needed a reason to visit Altoona, PA, here is a reason not to. I think the last paragraph is especially telling: an undocumented immigrant who was brought to Altoona as a child is believed to have killed 3 people at the age of 27... clearly it was his Dominican roots and lack of green card that caused it, and not having been raised in Altoona. Not to mention that, having been outside a nightclub or two in my day, I can't help but think the "victims" do not merit a law in their honor; it's not like they were shot outside an orphanage that they were volunteering at...

For other examples of reactionary and bigoted responses to an irrational fear of immigrants, I refer you to The Simpsons.
