If this were not so sad, it would be funny. In the mind of the conservative, “illegal immigrants” are responsible for pretty much everything they don’t like. Things such as terrorism, budget deficits, wage stagnation, unemployment, and now, measles. No, Mr Brooks, none of these things are true.
But in the case of measles, it is easy to figure out where the problem lies. The problem lies with the parents that don’t get their kids vaccinated because instead of believing doctors and science, they believe uninformed celebrities and idiotic conservative politicians. The problem lies in a new breed of politicians that take great pride in being ignorant and bashing science.
