Rule Of Law Bigotry

Firstly, an apology to Tim Worstall is in order, for losing the plot in his comments section.
I plead provocation.
Tim had linked to an absolutely appalling article by Gary Younge on the subject of migration, entitled 'Where someone's pocket change can feed another's family for a week'. If you elect to click on the link, do yourself a favour and hold your nose.
You'll get its drift from its subheading - "Migrant workers do the jobs that Americans will not do, but they are vulnerable to bigots and big business".
I dealt with most of it here - but Younge throws out one cheap shot too many when describing all opponents of mass immigration as 'bigots'.
If being in favour of the rule of the law makes you a bigot; if being in favour of the governments you elect and the bureacrats you fund enforcing the law with the taxes they demand from you makes you a bigot; if being in favour of Third World remittance pensioner societies healing themselves and adopting sensible economic policies in order to encourage indigenous growth instead of relying on Carlos and Pilar's wire transfers makes you a bigot; then count me in as a rule of law bigot.

Migrant workers are as much, or more vulnerable to the abuses of people from their own home country, than anyone else.
