"Fattman’s remarks exemplify the attitude of putting the nation before human life. The immigrant without papers has violated the sanctity of the nation, crossing borders without obtaining permission from the byzantine bureaucracies that answer to the politics of prejudice. Her actual safety is not as important as the hypothetical safety of the 'good citizens' who are supposed to be secured under the surveillance state. In this way rape becomes a less serious crime than paperwork violations." (06/12/11)
