Justice Sonia Sotomayor makes her mark

This made me so proud:

Justice Sotomayor’s opinion in the case, Mohawk Industries v. Carpenter, No. 08-678, marked the first use of the term “undocumented immigrant,” according to a legal database. The term “illegal immigrant” has appeared in a dozen decisions.

Terms like “illegal alien” and “illegal immigrant” are considered pejorative and offensive by immigrants rights organizations. (HT: ImmigrationProf Blog)

Now imagine who Bush would have (and has) nominated.

Done? Good.

Now grab some Pepto and imagine what Lou Dobbs must be thinking.

I'll stop pushing unpleasant thoughts into your noggins now. I'm sure you'll come up with many more all on your own.
