Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby always calls them as he sees them, usually annoying those of us on the left.If the online comments on today's column are any indication, however, he has really stirred up a hornet's nest on the right (and its most extreme fringes) this time.

He stated a few simple truths: the country is not being overrun by illegal immigrants and the effort eliminate the 14th Amendment to the Constitution is political grandstanding. Most important is his observation that "the players change in the immigration wars, but the rhetoric remains the same."
