When people acting as "experts" or "commentators" on the immigration debate demonize Latino immigrants, either legal or illegal, as a dangerous threat to American society or as subhuman and inherently inferior, they follow a tragic historical pattern which, time and again, has led to extreme civil rights abuses in American history.

Such labels are used to justify extreme action, sometimes even genocide, since the people using those labels claim that the "larger public interest" is at risk. Further, if a group is widely accepted as "inhuman" or "inferior," it allows the rest of society to suspend its normal standards of right and wrong in judging actions taken against the target group.
