Are U.S. citizens generous or mean to outsiders?

July 10, 2009

There’s an article in the LA Times on a new effort to cut back state programs available to illegal immigrants and even their U.S. born children. It’s very likely that one prominent reaction to this on the part of some activists will be to point out how in a period of economic trouble U.S. citizens become very hostile to outsiders.

One wonders, however, to what extent, if any, those same activists give credit to U.S. citizens for their amazing generosity to outsiders during periods of economic prosperity.
