Crisp: What's really wrong with Arizona ScrippsNews

"But it's short-sighted to ignore the historical context: Certainly, it's way too late to rectify the injustices of the Mexican-American War of 1846 or our well-documented exploitation of Mexican natural resources throughout the 19th Century. But eventually Mexico's proximity to the U.S. began to pay off: Mexican labor was not only permitted, it was encouraged, to come north, and a mutually beneficial, symbiotic relationship developed that functioned well in practical ways for many years on both sides of the border. Now, suddenly, we're shocked that we have Mexicans among us."
