AP reports agents for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement raided 11 McDonald's restaurants in Nevada and arrested at least 56 illegal aliens.
After the raids Gilbert Cortez, a "Latino leader," said:
"We don't approve of the Gestapo methods ICE is using."
In the mind of Mr. Gilbert Cortez, "Latino leader," the enforcement of American federal law by immigration officials is the moral equivalent of an evil that slaughtered six million Jews.
I have a hunch Mr. Cortez won't be disavowed or denounced any time soon by the National Council of La Raza.
The AP further reports:
"The raids drew immediate criticism from Reno Mayor Bob Cashell and activists, who estimated the number of arrests to be closer to 100.
"The mayor joined a news conference area Hispanic leaders and members of the American Civil Liberties Union called in front of the federal courthouse late Thursday."
