Ron Paul to Latinos: Illegal immigrants are being scapegoated

At a senior center in East Las Vegas, the Texas congressman told about 100 Hispanics that they have been unfairly made “scapegoats” for the country’s economic troubles. He said it’s “part of human nature” for newcomers to be shunned, but that prejudice toward outsiders worsens when unemployment is high. He said that illegal immigrants were being scapegoated in a similar manner as Jews were in Nazi Germany because of tough economic times…

“I just do not believe that barbed-wire fences or guns on our border will solve any of our problems,” he added…

The bulk of the growing Hispanic vote is in Clark County, which includes Las Vegas. “You hunt where the ducks are, and there’s a lot of ducks in Clark County,” said Paul campaign chairman Jesse Benton.
