Dear Fellow Tweeters,

Some people suggested that I should have responded off the list to
Clarence's public advocacy of murdering all immigrants caught entering the
country without papers outside of official border crossings. Yes, his post
violated the rules of the list and technically my response also violated
those rules. That said, I believe that to not respond on the list to this
outrageous suggestion would be to leave the world with the impression that
Washington birders are tolerant of his suggestion that all immigrants be
murdered on sight if they are not at an official border crossing and are
suspected not to have a visa. What is to stop these trigger happy "border
guards" from shooting Mexican-American birders that look to the "border
guard" like immigrants, but who are just near the border but were mistaken
for having just crossed the border?

This kind of outrageous suggestion on our list demands a public admonition
on our list.

We don't need a wall on our southern border. We need a DMZ with towers.
Let wildlife cross. Shoot dead human invaders.
