Quote of the Day

It isn't so much that people don't like the immigrants or don't think there's a place for them. It's just not that "Leave it to Beaver" era we grew up in.
—Gary Pence, a resident of Crete, Nebraska, in an article on anti-immigrant sentiment in Nebraska. Pence is quoted later in the article on the impact of Hispanic immigrants moving to Crete to work at Farmland, Inc., a meatpacking plant: "I honestly think the only hope for Crete is if Farmland closes up." So much for there being a "place for them", unless he meant a bus back to Mexico.
