Category: Journalistic, blog
What is it? A blog entry that offers an opinion against the illegal immigrants that come into the U.S.  USA Today-Opinion

Title: “Illegal Entrants” not Lawful
Publication Information: USA Today-Opinion blog, March 1, 2007
Author: David Albaugh
Location: Goldsboro, N.C.
Accessed: 1/28/09

Support:
This is also an amateur commentator that may not be an expert on immigrtion.  I feel it is always important to find out what “normal” people think on certain issues.  This blog entry is an example of that.

Source Analysis:
The USA Today is a nationally recognized newspaper.  It has the widest circulation of any newspaper in the United States, and it is distributed in all 50 states.

Usefulness:
David Albaugh is strongly against supporting illegal immigrants and their transition into our culture.  He feels threatened by the immigrants, and compares them to neighbors entering your house with out permission and eating your food and watching T.V.  He explains that the middle-class is the most affected by the immigrants.  The wealthy employ the immigrants to gain an extra penny.  The lower class don’t care enough because they are gaining some form of public assistance on their own.
