Lela Faye Rich: Basically bullies

Basically bullies

As members of the Republican Party take pride in the recent steps to issue a specially striped “No Legal Status” license to immigrants, it might be prudent for legislators to listen to their children or their grandchildren, who are learning strategies in the public schools to avoid bullying.

All student immigrants brought to the United States by their parents will remember which party singled them out with this disgraceful driving license. The Republican Party in North Carolina will be known, forever, as the party that bullied young immigrants.

Is this the legacy the GOP wants to leave the next generation?
