Navarrete on Huntington

More reaction to Samuel Huntington's upcoming book:

You hear all the time about how the immigrants of today are different from those of 100 years ago. That's just nonsense. They have the same impressive work ethic, the same optimism and the same sense that America is a place of limitless opportunities. They also generate much the same reaction from natives. The same sorts of things that are said about Latinos today were, a century or two ago, said about the Irish, Germans or Italians. They weren't true then, and they aren't true now.
