Listen to people like Jim Pendergraph, Sue Myrick and the folks at ALIPAC, and you'd think illegal immigrants were invading Charlotte by the millions, eating live babies and setting up open-air drug markets Uptown. But the truth is, immigrants who come to our fair city — however they arrive — are looking for a better way of life. And the people and groups who vilify them are really just kicking up fear in order to promote an agenda of hate. This bigoted song and dance is kind of old and tired. So, enough already.
