Michelle Malkin, Ahead of the Learning Curve

Usually it takes a family of immigrants a few generations before they really adopt the slam-the-door-shut xenophobe-nationalist-conservative ideology of the Pat Buchanans and Lou Dobbses of the world. Michelle Malkin, Conservative columnist, TV commentator and blogger is there as just a first-generation daughter of Filipino parents who came here on student visas.

...and she blames the entire financial meltdown on Mexican immigrants, mostly the illegals. In a September 24 column, she opines,
It’s no coincidence that most of the areas hardest hit by the
foreclosure wave — Loudoun County, Va., California’s Inland Empire,
Stockton and San Joaquin Valley, and Las Vegas and Phoenix, for
starters — also happen to be some of the nation’s largest illegal-alien
sanctuaries. Half of the mortgages to Hispanics are subprime (the
accursed species of loan to borrowers with the shadiest credit
histories). A quarter of all those subprime loans are in default and
foreclosure.

Regional reports across the country have decried
the subprime meltdown’s impact on illegal-immigrant “victims.” A July
report showed that in seven of the ten metro areas with the highest
foreclosure rates, Hispanics represented at least one third of the
population; in two of those areas — Merced and Salinas-Monterey, Calif.
— Hispanics comprised half the population.
I don't even know where to go with this! Who'd like to point out the logical fallacies with me? Composition, post-hoc-ergo-proptor-hoc? This is completely off the deep end, and hypocritical toboot! Yes! It's illegal-alien mango pickers buying million-dollar McMansions! What? Someone get me off the deep end, and Ani, remind me to smack you next time I see you for elevating my blood pressure with this.
