In his 1952 Pulitzer Prize winning book The Uprooted, historian Oscar Handlin begins with the sentence: "Once I thought to write a history of the immigrants in America. Then I discovered that the immigrants were American history." So what's behind this rampage of expulsion against immigrants today? A draconian persecution that even the New York Times has been compelled to criticize
