Excerpts:

Gay marriage and urban crime are part of the picture. But, in particular, it is the debate over what to do about the nation’s nearly 35 million immigrants, of whom about 11 million are in the US illegally, that has become the Klan’s main recruiting tool.

“I’m more worried about the exploitation of the immigration issue generally than I am about the Klan exploiting it,” says Levin[director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino]. “I think the Klan is going to hit a ceiling because of the negative symbolism, the negative baggage.”

Debate over what to do about America’s nearly 35 million immigrants??  What, exactly, are Bush, the two Minuteman groups and other hate groups going to do about immigrants?
