Hispanics want Blunt aide fired for remark
Martin´s Remark: "I'll tell you what's available, is every frigging developer can figure out who is illegal, and when he says — like he told them — there's a bunch of Mexicans out there, I guess some of them are probably not legal"
Hispanic Citizen Response: "Martin's comment showed a "xenophobic mentality" that results in racial profiling."
Commision Liaison Torres´ letter to Gov Blunt, "deeply offended by Martin's remark."I am the proud grandson of Mexican immigrants who came to this country to provide a better life for their family and unlimited opportunities for their grandchildren and great-grandchildren," Torres wrote to Blunt. He said his family served the country during World War II and the Korean War. He asked that Martin issue a public apology."
My response: Calling Hispanic citizens "a bunch of Mexicans" certainly sounds like racial profiling to me. Martin should apologize! It is clear Blunt is using this issue to gain votes by any means necessary. The ANTI sites are already cheering Martin. Shameful!
